About this book

Excess water in the urban environment results in flooding,which causes structural damage, risks to personal safety and disruption to city life. Water is also a major contributory factor for disease transmission as well as being the medium for transport of many pollutants. These problems are of increasing concern due to climate changes and are particularly apparent in the humid tropics.

Integrated Urban Water Management: Humid Tropics – the output of a project by UNESCO's International Hydrological Programme on the topic – focuses on engineering aspects related to water supply, wastewater and stormwater management in the humid tropics. Flood control is dealt with a specific emphasis on reducing vulnerability to flood disasters in urban areas. The book also addresses environmental health concerns related to the different components of the urban water system and strategies for their control. Integrated Urban Water Management: Humid Tropics provides illustrations of different aspects of integrated water management in the urban environment by drawing upon a set of case studies – predominantly from South America.
