The Hydropolitics of Dams : Engineering or Ecosystems?, Paperback / softback Book

The Hydropolitics of Dams : Engineering or Ecosystems? Paperback / softback


The Hydropolitics of Dams charts the troubled waters of 'heavy engineering' approaches to ecosystem management, exploring the history, benefits and problems of large dams.

It then explores diverse ecosystem-based approaches to management of human interactions with the water cycle, concluding that a synthesis of approaches is needed in future.

The book also addresses political, economic and legal dimensions of water management.

Featuring case studies from China, India and South Africa, this insightful new book argues that there are more appropriate physical and social technologies that can help to sustainably provide access to clean water for all.
