Description - Water Law and Policy by Dr. Elli Louka

Water Law and Policy examines water management in Europe, and the difficulties and policy dilemmas involved in creating integrated water management institutions. This is the only overall assessment of the development and evolution of European Water Law and Policy. The book is unique in that it concentrates on institutional development, norms and guiding principles, implementation strategies, and public participation mechanisms at the local level, EU level, and globally. Water is one of the most mismanaged natural resources. Failed water management policies and fragmented water management institutions can have catastrophic results, including both flooding and water scarcity. Dr. Elli Louka's book provides insights that can guide water development policies across national borders. It is a must-read for policymakers, water managers, and students who need to understand national and transnational water management.
