Conflict Prevention and Resolution in Water Systems
The Management of Water Resources Series No. 5
This important collection reprints the most significant papers and case studies on the prevention and resolution of conflict over water resources. It focuses in particular on the human dynamics that are involved when conflicts over water resources impact on different interest groups, economic sectors and legal or political boundaries. It addresses key issues which arise at both the local and the international level, including amongst others: How do people interact in these situations of conflict? What methods do they use to find a compromise? What institutions do they create - either jointly or unilaterally - to help overcome problems in the future? This interdisciplinary collection will be essential reading for professional water practitioners throughout the world, including engineers, economists, geographers, geologists, and political scientists concerned with water disputes and conflict resolution. It will make a significant contribution to the study of water as an essential theme in the increasingly important topic of environmental security.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'... this volume ... is certainly a valuable addition to university and research libraries.' -- Claudia Ringler, Quarterly Journal of International Agriculture 'Overall, I believe that Dr Wolf has edited a valuable reference for researchers and practitioners who are interested in responsibly managing and equitably resolving conflicts over water and the environment. This reference furnishes informative background information for both graduate and undergraduate courses in water management and provides guidance for future research on conflict resolution in water resources ... Dr. Wolf's well-organized book on water conflict brings together under one cover a wealth of valuable information from a wide variety of sources that would be difficult to obtain otherwise.' -- Keith W. Hipel, Journal of Water Resources Planning and Management
