Description - Water in Crisis by Peter H. Gleick

The issues surrounding water quality, quantity, and possible future conflicts over shared international water resources may soon overshadow most other environmental concerns. This book is a joint project between the Pacific Institute and the Stockholm Environment Institute. It is a comprehensive guide to the world's fresh-water resources, access to clean drinking water and sanitation, the use of water for energy and food production, the quality of rivers, lakes, and inland seas, and the condition of fresh-water fisheries and natural aquatic ecosystems. In addition, eight essays by leading specialists cover such issues as the status of international conflicts over water, developments in international water law, hydroelectric developments, the possible effects of climatic change on water resources, and the state of fresh-water fisheries. This book is intended for students, professionals (hydrologists, engineers) and government workers (managers, policy makers) in the environmental sciences
