The proceedings from The Water and Society Conference 2015 aim to encourage trans-disciplinary communication on issues related to the nature of water, and its use and exploitation by society. The papers within this book demonstrate the need to bridge the gap between the broad spectrum of socio-political sciences and humanistic disciplines and specialists in physical sciences, biology, environmental sciences and health.
The Water and Society conference series which began 2011 comprise of issues such as the need for clean and inexpensive water by an increasing global population, and the growing demands of Agriculture and Industry. The book deals with the interaction between water and energy systems, as well as the more technical aspects of water resources management and quality, in the aim to help the policy makers put forward policies and legislation that will lead to improved solutions for all.
Topics covered include: Water as a human right; Water quality; Water resources contamination; Water sanitation and health; Water and disaster management; Future water demands; Irrigation and desertification.
