Facing the challenges: World water development report 4 (WWDR4) - Volume 3

Source(s):  UN-Water
United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO)

The present volume features concise summaries of fifteen case studies compiled over a period of three years, providing ‘snapshots’ of water management and use today in diverse regions of the world. These case studies, by design, closely complement the other volumes of the 2012 World Water Development Report 4, as most of the factors influencing water resources management discussed in those volumes, including natural hazards, can be observed in the volume 3.

This volume constitutes a valuable contribution to the international community. The experiences and policies it describes provide different perspectives for all those working towards sustainable development – not only water professionals, but managers and decision makers at all levels, and researchers from within or outside the ‘water box’ – helping all to make informed decisions with better knowledge.

Case studies include:
- Ghana
- Mara River basin, Kenya and Tanzania
- Jordan
- Morocco
- Murray-Darling basin, Australia
- Yellow River basin, China
- Jeju Island, Korea
- Pakistan, with special reference to the Indus River basin
- Czech Republic
- Marseille Provence Métropole Urban Community, France
- Tiber River basin, Italy
- Tagus River basin, Portugal
- St Johns River basin, Florida, United States of America
- Costa Rica
- Lerma-Chapala basin, Mexico
