Containing papers from the ninth International Conference on Sustainable Water Resources Management, this book presents the work of scientists, practitioners and other experts regarding recent technological and scientific developments associated with the management of surface and sub-surface water resources.

Water is essential for sustaining life on our planet, nevertheless its unequal distribution is a source of permanent conflict. It is predicted that population growth and irregular rainfall, due to climate change, may lead to more restricted access to water in certain regions of the world. This problem is made even more severe by human actions that can cause degradation to nature and the environment.

These papers cover such topics as: Urban water management; Water and the community; Water Governance; Water quality issues; Nutrients, water and productivity; Flood risk management; River basin management; Safety and security of water systems.
