The purpose of this book is to present an overview of the latest research, policy, practitioner, academic and international thinking on water security-an issue that, like water governance a few years ago, has developed much policy awareness and momentum with a wide range of stakeholders. As a concept it is open to multiple interpretations, and the authors here set out the various approaches to the topic from different perspectives.

Key themes addressed include:

Water security as a foreign policy issue The interconnected variables of water, food, and human security Dimensions other than military and international relations concerns around water security Water security theory and methods, tools and audits.

The book is loosely based on a masters level degree plus a short professional course on water security both given at the University of East Anglia, delivered by international authorities on their subjects. It should serve as an introductory textbook as well as be of value to professionals, NGOs, and policy-makers.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Lankford, Bakker, Zeitoun and Conway have put together the best collection on the subject of water security I've ever read." - Lawrence Susskind, MIT, in Anthem EnviroExperts Review

"One of the most useful models in the book is a web of sustainable water security including climate security, national security, water resources security, energy security and food security. One can readily appreciate that a dynamic systems approach is required to manage this kind of complexity, and indeed one of the contributions is specifically devoted to water security for ecosystems in terms of optimum allocation." - David Lorimer, Network Review
