Water, already a scarce resource, is treated as though it were plentiful and free. The task of supplying enough water of the required quality to growing populations is straining authorities and governments to the limit as the economic and environmental costs of new supply sources escalate and wasteful supply, delivery and consumption systems persist.
Managing Water as an Economic Resource argues that the root of the crisis is the failure of suppliers and consumers to treat water as a scarce commodity with an economic value. James Winpenny evaluates policies for the improved management of existing demand, and draws on case studies from different countries as he discusses how policies could be implemented to treat water as an economic good conferring major economic, financial and environmental benefits.

About the Author:

James Winpenny is a Research Fellow at the Overseas Development Institute, London.

Review:

`This lucidly written book will inform, and should shift ideas and prejudices of many influential individuals and insitutions, and give an impetus to the dissemination of new approaches to the allocation and management of water. The scale of the influence will be out of all proportion to the size of the book. Happily the size of the publication means that it will be affordable for staff and students in Higher Education, even overseas, to their great enrichment.' - Geographical Jrnl

`...This easily readable and affordable book provides a valuable contribution to the debate and I would recommend it to those at whom it is primarily aimed, ie. policy makers and practitioners in governmental and international organisations, also students and researchers in both developed and developing countries.' - Institute of Water and Environmental Management
