State of the Art Reviews
Call for Papers
The International Journal of Water Resources Development invites expressions of interest to prepare State-of-the-Art reviews. These reviews should objectively and critically synthetize current knowledge in speciﬁc water-related areas.
While the Journal will consider all types of state-of-the-art reviews by subjects and geographic regions, following areas are of speciﬁc interest:
● Management of non-point sources of pollution.
● Emerging contaminants and their potential health implications.
● Social perceptions and attitudes to non-traditional sources of water for potable use (e.g. recycled wastewater, desalination, etc.).
● Comparative analyses of water governance by regions, countries or sectors.
● Institutional arrangements: formal and informal, top-down and down-top.
● Legal and regulatory frameworks for water management.
● Economic instruments for water demand management.
● Experiences of water demand management for urban, agricultural and industrial sectors as well as for the environment, and their interlinkages.
● Water reuse practices of domestic and industrial sectors.
● Advances in groundwater management.
● Energy requirements for water production, transportation and delivery as well as wastewater treatment.
● Infrastructure development.
● Role of the private sector in the domestic, industrial and agricultural sectors.
● Eﬀectiveness of public-private partnerships and lessons that could be learnt from them.
● Non-governmental organisations as development partners.
Expressions of interest should be sent to Dr. Cecilia Tortajada, Editor in Chief, International Journal of Water Resources Development.
