  1. What is Land For?

    The Food, Fuel and Climate Change Debate

    Edited by Michael Winter, Matt Lobley

    In recent decades agricultural commodity surpluses in the developed world have contributed to a mantra of 'land surplus' in which set-aside, extensification, alternative land uses and 'wilding' have been key terms in debates over land. Quite suddenly all this has changed as a consequence of rapidly...

  2. Water and Cities in Latin America

    Challenges for Sustainable Development

    Edited by Ismael Aguilar-Barajas, Jürgen Mahlknecht, Jonathan Kaledin, Marianne Kjellén, Abel Mejía-Betancourt

    Series: Earthscan Studies in Water Resource Management

    Approximately 80 per cent of the population of Latin America is concentrated in urban centres. Pressure on water resources and water management in cities therefore provide major challenges. Despite the importance of the issues, there has been little systematic coverage of the topic in book form....

  3. Dynamics in Organic Matter Processing, Ecosystem Metabolism and Tropic Sources for Consumers in the Mara River, Kenya

    By Frank Onderi Masese

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    To properly conserve, restore and manage riverine ecosystems and the services they provide, it is pertinent to understand their functional dynamics. Growing human populations and high dependency on natural resources in developing countries have exerted pressure on land and water resources. However,...

  4. Catchment and River Basin Management

    Integrating Science and Governance

    Edited by Laurence Smith, Keith Porter, Kevin Hiscock, Mary Jane Porter, David Benson

    Series: Earthscan Studies in Water Resource Management

    The central focus of this volume is a critical comparative analysis of the key drivers for water resource management and the provision of clean water – governance systems and institutional and legal arrangements. The authors present a systematic analysis of case study river systems drawn from...

  5. Hydraulic and Operational Performance of Irrigation Schemes in View of Water Saving and Sustainability

    Sugar Estates and Community Managed Schemes in Ethiopia

    By Zeleke Agide Dejen

    Series: UNESCO-IHE PhD Thesis Series

    The rate of global increase in water abstraction for irrigation has been declining since the 1970’s due to declining potentials for large and medium-scale irrigation developments, and is expected to further decline in the next decades. As such the significant proportion of the expected increase in...

  6. Dam Protections against Overtopping and Accidental Leakage

    Edited by Miguel Ángel Toledo, Rafael Morán, Eugenio Oñate

    In the last decades, the technology of dam protection has undergone major advancements. The increasing demand for safety in modern society has created the need for cost-effective measures to protect critical infrastructure such as dams. This situation has resulted in the drafting of new regulations...

  8. Transient Free Surface Flows in Building Drainage Systems

    By John Swaffield

    Climate change will present a series of challenges to engineers concerned with the provision of both building internal appliance drainage networks and rainwater systems within the building boundary, generally identified as the connection to the sewer network. Climate change is now recognised as...

  9. Drought: Research and Science-Policy Interfacing

    Edited by Joaquin Andreu, Abel Solera, Javier Paredes-Arquiola, David Haro-Monteagudo, Henny van Lanen

    Droughts occur in arid and semi-arid areas of the world, but also in humid areas, and can develop over short periods (flash drought) or longer periods (seasons/decades). Even though progress has been made, it remains difficult to adequately characterize, monitor, forecast and manage droughts, due...
