Water policy and management
A new book "Global Change: Impacts on Water and Food SecurityInternational from Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) addresses the urgent call for smart policy and investment solutions to the developing world’s 21st century water resource quantity and quality challenges. The book also examines the interplay between globalization, water management, and food security, and recommends innovative approaches to water management in the global context. A collaboration with the CGIAR Challenge Program on Water and Food and the Third World Centre on Water Management, the book emphasizes the impact of trade on water management and security in the developing world. It also touches on a wide range of hot button issues—from bioenergy to the global fish trade—and explains how policymakers can finance these and other growing demands on water resources in the future. Book available on the IFPRI site.
