Brief Description

This publication is the outcome of an expert- group meeting organized by Regional Center on Urban Water Management (RCUWM) under the auspices of UNESCO with the aim of providing practical advice to improve water security in human settlements, using best practices, lesson learned and effective tools, specifically in arid and semi-arid areas. This book describes what such best practice and planning and management might involve, and uses several case studies undertaken by authors in arid regions including valuable experiences on urban water management.
