    schema:description ""Water managers in the twenty-first century face a complex variety of interacting challenges. Though Europe is generally well supplied with water resources to meet its needs, there are regions of chronic shortage as well as regions of unacceptably low quality water. Where either there is the case, there are strong arguments for pan-European approach to balance out surpluses and deficits, especially amongst EU current and prospective members. Illustrated with case studies which explain key concepts and provide practical examples, this book provides a detailed and comprehensive introduction to water management issues from a European perspective. The book begins with a brief history of water management, followed by a consideration of the major frameworks used for managing water in its qualitative and quantitative aspects. Several chapters treat key water management issues, including; dams, privatization, hydropolitics, climate change and finally provides a synoptic treatment of major water management issues across Europe's geographical regions."--Page 4 of cover."@en ;
