A Sea Change: The Exclusive Economic Zone and Governance Institutions for Living Marine Resources

Book Description With growing concern about the oceans and the resources of this realm has come a proliferation of international and national efforts aimed at protecting this environment. This volume constitutes the initial effort to reflect on the outcomes associated with the third Law of the Sea Conference and to assess how the reforms and changes brought on by this conference have performed. The establishment of 200-mile Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZ’s) constitutes one of the most far-reaching distributional and institutional changes in the history of the world. They brought over 20 % of the world’s oceans, a substantial proportion of its productivity, and 90 to 95 % of world fisheries under the national jurisdiction of coastal states. At this time, 145 states have ratified the Law of the Sea Convention and most have established EEZs. Some have established only a legal framework, while other countries have elaborated EEZ regimes. This volume focuses on the...

Every Drop for Sale: Our Desperate Battle Over Water in a World About to Run Out

Book DescriptionAn investigative journalist explores our world on the brink of running out of usable water. Less than .0008 percent of the total water on Earth is fit for human consumption, but global consumption of fresh water is doubling everytwenty years. Water has become perhaps our most precious commodity-a life-sustaining but increasingly rare and privatized resource. A dramatic gap exists between those who have adequate water for survival and those who don't, and tensions over water in some areas of the world hover just below open war. From Europe to Asia to Africa to America, Jeffrey Rothfeder has visited the world's hot spots, those with the least amount of water, as well as places where there is so much of it that plans are in the works to sell the excess to the highest bidder. In this compelling narrative account of our world in turmoil over water, Rothfeder describes the issues and struggles of the people on all sides of the water crisis: from the scarred...

Incentives and Instruments for Sustainable Irrigation

This is the first book that looks at Sustainable Irrigation in a holisticway by considering the need for interdependence of the objectives ofsustainable agriculture, sustainable water management, sustainable water infrastructure, sustainable irrigation communities and a sustainable environment and the need to reallocate water among competing users, and the need for water and food security in an environment of scarcity. It doesthis by accepting the linkages between these objectives and the need to change behavior and perceptions when it comes to water and how water is used. It also considers the need for new institutional and governancestructures as well as robust allocation frameworks to deal with climate change, both from a theoretical and conceptual perspective and by a numberof case studies from around the world.The book deals with the complex issue of promoting the development of sustainable irrigation. It does not see sustainable irrigation as a fixed defined endpoint but rather...

Public Participation In The Governance Of International Freshwater Resources

Book DescriptionClean water is essential to human survival, yet it is increasingly scarce. Despite pressures on this crucial resource, people often have little or no opportunity to participate in watershed decisions that affect them, particularly when they live along international watercourses. The success of efforts to manage water effectively, efficiently, and equitably will depend, in large part, on providing the public with a voice in watershed management decisions that affect them. This volume examines experiences in public participation in the management of many watercourses around the world, drawing lessons learned and highlighting areas for further development.

Rhine: Proto-Indo-European Root, Reno, KD Steamer, Witenwasserenstock, Piz Lunghin, Rhine Gorge, Rhine Falls, Paradies Glacier, Oberalp Pass, Ruinaulta, Canton of St. Gallen

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Rhine (German: Rhein; Dutch: Rijn; French: Rhin; Romansh: Rain; Italian: Reno; Latin: Rhenus West Frisian Ryn) is one of the longest and most important rivers in Europe, at 1,320 km (820 mi), with an average discharge of more than 2,000 m3/s (71,000 cu ft/s).The name of the Rhine derives from Gaulish Renos, and ultimately from the Proto-Indo-European root *reie- ("to move, flow, run"), which is also the root of words like river and run. The Reno River in Italy shares the same etymology. The spelling with -h- seems to be borrowed from the Greek form of the name, Rhenos.

Salt Evaporation Pond: Pond, Salt, Seawater, Brine, Evaporation, Dunaliella Salina, San Francisco Bay, Dead Sea, Useless Loop, Western Australia, Onslow, Western Australia, Concentrating Solar Power

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Salt evaporation ponds are shallow man-made ponds designed to produce salts from sea water or other brines. The seawater or brine is fed into large ponds and water is drawn out through natural evaporation which allows the salt to be subsequently harvested. The ponds also provide a productive resting and feeding ground for many species of waterbirds, including several endangered species. The ponds are commonly separated by levees. Due to variable algal concentrations, vivid colors, from pale green to bright red, are created in the evaporation ponds. The color indicates the salinity of the ponds. Micro-organisms change their hues as the salinity of the pond increases. In low to mid-salinity ponds, green algae are predominant. In middle to high salinity ponds, an algae called Dunaliella salina shifts the color to red. Millions of tiny brine shrimp create an orange cast in mid-salinity ponds. Other bacteria such as Stichococcus also contribute...

The Water Business : Corporations Versus People (Global Issues Series)

Book Description The worldwide privatization of public sector services has expanded market opportunities for transnational corporations enormously. Ann-Christian Holland visits countries as far apart as Britain and Argentina, Ghana and South Africa,to find the effect of privatization on that most basic of human needs, fresh water. She finds that two companies, Suez and Veolia, rapidly came to dominate nearly 80% of the privatized water market. As prices for water soared, massive public protests erupted in country after country. Holland interviewed senior corporate executives to get their responses, and sets out the arguments on both sides to present some of the innovative ideas and experiments for providing water as an essential service for all citizens.

Water Policy Entrepreneurs: A Research Companion to Water Transitions Around the Globe (Elgar Original Reference)

`Unsurpassed in the scope of its coverage, this book explores like no other the roles of policy entrepreneurs and the causes of policy change across diverse political systems ranging from the developing world to the largest western democracies. The studies show how entrepreneurs work with outside donors, take advantage of windows of political opportunity, create those windows, and push the policy process in the direction they hope. They also show the limits to these strategies, and strategies that tend to fail. The book dramatically advances our understanding not only of change and stability in water policy, but of the policy process more generally.' - Frank R. Baumgartner, University of North Carolina, US `This book is a theoretically and empirically grounded analysis of one of the world's most pressing problems: the management of water resources. The editors have assembled a remarkable collection of authors with a truly global outlook and an excellent grasp of contemporary...
