Water. Local-level Management By D B Brooks, IDRC, 2002. 80 pp. ISBN 0 88936 996 8 CAD 15 Euro 9.95
Water is a source of life. And a source of conflict. While many fear interstate conflicts over water in the near future, most actual water conflicts today are being fought out at local level, between communities, between households and between agriculture and industry. While at interstate level water treaties are being put in place, perhaps more effective solutions are being found at local level. At least, that is what the author of Water argues. This concise booklet brings together 30 years experience in water management research by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC). It serves well as an introductory guide to local water management issues, briefly describing technologies, such as rainwater harvesting, irrigation, wastewater use and fog catching, from the perspective of policy and decision makers.
