Where water crosses boundaries -- be they economic, legal, political, or cultural -- the stage is set for disputes among different users trying to safeguard access to a vital resource, while protecting the natural environment. Without strategies to anticipate, address, and mediate among competing users, intractable water conflicts are likely to become more frequent, more intense, and more disruptive around the world. In this book, Jerome Delli Priscoli and Aaron T. Wolf investigate the dynamics of water conflict and conflict resolution, from the local to the international. They explore the inexorable links among three facets of conflict management and transformation: alternative dispute resolution (ADR), public participation, and institutional capacity. This practical guide will be invaluable to water management professionals, as well as to researchers and students in engineering, economics, geography, geology, and political science who are involved in any aspect of water management."--Provided by publisher."@en ;
