This book presents papers from an international conference, held in Bonn, Germany in February 2005, that dealt with integrated water resources management in industrialized and developing countries. The papers detail such emerging concepts as blue and green water, virtual water, the water footprints of nations, multi-agent modeling, linkages between water and biodiversity, and social learning and adaptive management.
State of the art review of the science of integrated water resources management in industrialised and developing countries
Novel concepts such as blue and green water, virtual water trade, water footprints of nations, etc.
New perspectives and methodologies for modelling, up-scaling, and social learning in water management
