About this book

Countries are meeting increasing water demand by building reservoirs and by diverting water from one area to another. When the water belongs to an international river system, these measures lead to riparian conflicts. However, water scarcity not only brings conflict to these regions, but also plays its part in building cooperation. Managing Water Conflict looks at these current stresses and likely future scenarios for this vitally important subject.
