About this book

Integrated Urban Water Management (IUWM) is a new approach to managing the entire urban water cycle in an integrated way, a key to achieving the sustainability of urban water resources and services. The IUWM incorporates the systematic consideration of the various dimensions of water, including surface and groundwater resources, quality and quantity issues, the fact that water is a system and component which interacts with other systems and the interrelationships between water and social and economic development.

Integrated Urban Water Management: Arid and Semi-Arid Regions examines the integrated management of water resources in urban settings, focusing on issues specific to arid and semi-arid regions. The urban water management system is considered here as two integrated processes: water supply management and water excess management. Case studies include: Mexico City, Mexico, Tucson, Arizona; Awash River Basin, Ethiopia; China; and Cairo, Egypt
