Eau Canada: The Future of Canada's Water
UBC Press, Nov 1, 2011 - Nature - 440 pages
As the sustainability of our natural resources is increasingly questioned, Canadians remain stubbornly convinced of the unassailability of our water. Mounting evidence suggests, however, that Canadian water is under threat. Eau Canada assembles the country's top water experts to discuss our most pressing water issues. Perspectives from a broad range of thinkers geographers, environmental lawyers, former government officials, aquatic and political scientists, and economists reflect the diversity of concerns in water management.
Arguing that weak governance is at the heart of Canada's water problems, this timely book identifies our key failings, explores debates over jurisdiction, transboundary waters, exports, and privatization, and maps out solutions for protecting our most important resource.
