The continuously changing pressures on our water resources are diverse: the pressure to produce food and provide household water is of extreme importance in Africa; in Asia, the rapidly emerging economies of China and India show that the need for water of sufficient quality is becoming a development constraint; and in Europe, North America, Australia and Japan, water resources have long been recognized as essential for social well-being, as now expressed in institutional changes, such as the European Water Framework. This diverse set of challenges is met with an equally diverse set of solutions and approaches, as illustrated in this book.
