Globalization of Water is a first-of-its-kind review of the critical relationship between globalization and sustainable water management. It explores the impact of international trade on local water depletion and pollution and identifies “water dependent” nations.

  • Examines the critical link between water management and international trade, considering how local water depletion and pollution are often closely tied to the structure of the global economy
  • Offers a consumer-based indicator of each nation's water use: the water footprint
  • Questions whether trade can enhance global water use efficiency, or whether it simply shifts the environmental burden to a distant location
  • Highlights the hidden link between national consumption and the use of water resources across the globe, identifying the threats facing 'water dependent' countries worldwide
  • Provides a state-of-the-art review and in-depth data source for a new field of knowledge
