Groundwater Quantity and Quality

 

MDPI AG - Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2016.

Título de la serie/colección: Resources. ISSN 2079-9276,

ISBNs 9783038422051 9783038422051

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): Groundwater is an essential component of the water cycle and is a critical resource for much of the world’s population. On a planet where demand for groundwater and other resources is ever increasing, issues of groundwater quantity and quality are a major focus in many regions of the world. This Special Issue will provide an overview of topics that focus on either groundwater quantity or quality issues that are relevant on regional or national scales. Examples of groundwater quantity issues include long-term groundwater sustainability, interactions between groundwater and ecosystem function, etc. Water quality issues could include effects on water quality from overexploitation of groundwater, contamination from petroleum, and mineral resource development, etc.

Managing Water on China's Farms

Institutions, Policies and the Transformation of Irrigation Under Scarcity

 

Academic Press, 2016.

ISBNs 9780128051641

Colección: ScienceDirect

Resumen (en inglés):

Managing Water on China's Farms: Institutions, Policies and the Transformation of Irrigation under Scarcity is a comprehensive and current look at the water shortage problems in China. While China has emerged as a major player in the world economy, water is the most critical factor that limits the country’s further growth. China’s growing water problems also have a large impact worldwide, with public health as well as economic impacts. If China were to rely heavily on food produced outside of China, the massive volume of food imports would raise food prices internationally. This book examines a series of water issues, beginning with a description of the water shortage problems in China, particularly in the northern part of the country. It then looks at the government and farmers' responses and whether past policies have been effective in resolving the water problems.

Managing Water on China’s Farms documents the change of existing and new water management institutional forms over time and across provinces throughout northern China, and then assesses the impacts of these changes in the rural sector. Finally, it examines potential solutions that the research has uncovered, answering the question: Who can build the bridge over China’s troubled waters? Using analyses from information collected firsthand in China’s rural villages, the series of surveys covers diverse geographic regions that are representative of north China and includes perspectives from multiple stakeholders such as village leaders, water managers, and farmers. The policy-oriented research and rich analysis in this book make it of interest to both policy makers and researchers with a focus on China water problems. This book can also be used in a Master or Ph.D. level resource economics course.

  • Uses case studies including problem, factors, proposed solutions, and pros and cons of each to facilitate translational learning and application
  • Uses analyses of firsthand data collected from sources of irrigation water, irrigation systems, and water users
  • Covers governance and operation and maintenance (O and M) practices
  • Provides an informative, quantitative, and rigorous analysis of survey results
  • Provides practical and valuable data, including the detailed micro-level data that enables estimating strategies

Policy and Economics of Managed Aquifer Recharge and Water Banking

Vol. Special Issue

 

MDPI AG - Multidisciplinary Digital Publishing Institute, 2015.

Título de la serie/colección: Water. ISSN 2073-4441,

ISBNs 9783038420934 9783038420941

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): Managed Aquifer Recharge (MAR) and water banking is a growing field of endeavor in water resources management. It is used to buffer against drought, changing climate and demand growth by making use of excess surface water supplies and recycled waters. Institutions that perform the necessary permitting and monitoring are required so that a region’s groundwater quantity and/or quality management can be furthered through MAR. While several jurisdictions have frameworks in place, many do not. Lack of an enabling policy and governance frameworks limits the realization of MAR benefits. Limited analysis of the economics of MAR has also inhibited development of and investment in MAR programs. This special edition of the ‘Water’ Journal is designed to fill the analysis void by including papers on the policy and economics of MAR and water banking. The information and analyses are intended to contribute to the development and implementation of effective MAR programs.
