Bridges over Water places the study of transboundary water conflicts, negotiation, and cooperation in the context of various disciplines, such as international relations, international law, international negotiations, and economics. It demonstrates their application, using various quantitative approaches, such as river basin modeling, quantitative negotiation theory, and game theory. Case-studies of particular transboundary river basins, lakes, and aquifers are also considered. This second edition updates the literature on international water and in-depth analyses on political developments and cooperation between riparian states. With an appended chapter on principles and practices of negotiation, and a new case study on the La Plata Basin, this edition is a timely update to the field of transboundary water studies.

This book is an up-to-date primer covering the most important subjects in energy economics, with particular attention paid to oil, natural gas, and nuclear energy, and without an excessive amount of mathematics. The first three survey chapters constitute an introductory (and mostly non-technical) short course in modern energy economics. Most of the technical analysis is taken up in the following four chapters, while the last chapter is a completely non-technical summation that can be read independent of the rest of the book. Written in a user-friendly tone, it is suitable as a textbook for undergraduate and/or graduate students, but most of the book should be accessible to anyone with a serious interest in energy economics.

Transboundary Water from Afghanistan: Climate Change, and Land-Use Implications brings together diverse factual material on the physical geography and political, cultural, and economic implications of Southwest Asian transboundary water resources. It is the outgrowth of long-term deep knowledge and experience gained by the authors, as well as the material developed from a series of new workshops funded by the Lounsbery Foundation and other granting agencies. Afghanistan and Pakistan have high altitude mountains providing vital water supplies that are highly contentious necessities much threatened by climate change, human land-use variation, and political manipulation, which can be managed in new ways that are in need of comprehensive discussions and negotiations between all the riparian nations of the Indus watershed (Afghanistan, China, India, and Pakistan). This book provides a description of the basic topographic configuration of the Kabul River tributary to the Indus river, together will all its tributaries that flow back and forth across the border between Afghanistan and Pakistan, and the basic elements that are involved with the hydrological cycle and its derivatives in the high mountains of the Hindu Kush and Himalaya. Synthesizes information on the physical geography and political, cultural, and economic implications of Southwest Asian transboundary water resources Offers a basic topographic description of the Indus River watershed Provides local water management information not easily available for remote and contentious border areas Delivers access to the newest thinking from chief personnel on both sides of the contentious border Features material developed from a series of new workshops funded by the Lounsbery Foundation and other granting agencies

‘Complexity of Transboundary Water Conflicts’ seeks to understand transboundary water issues as complex systems with contingent conditions and possibilities. To address those conditions and leverage the possibilities it introduces the concept of enabling conditions as a pragmatic way to identify and act on the emergent possibilities to resolve transboundary water issues. Based on this theoretical frame, the book applies the ideas and tools from complexity science, contingency and enabling conditions to account for events in the formulation of treaties/agreements between disputing riparian states in river basins across the world (Indus, Jordan, Nile, Ganges, Brahmaputra, Colorado, Danube, Senegal and Zayandehrud). It also includes a section with scholars’ reflections on the relevance and weakness of the theoretical framework.

Water scarcity due to climate change, population growth, and economic development is a critical issue in many semi-arid and arid regions around the world. Water scarcity is especially critical in regions where water is shared by several riparian states and used for competing purposes (irrigation, domestic, industry, environment, and hydropower). There is evidence that water scarcity may give rise to conflicts among the riparian states that share water basins. At the same time, there is evidence that proper arrangements among riparian states create a basis for cooperation, which is a necessary condition for economic development, food production, environmental sustainability, and poverty reduction. This book presents a collection of work presented by a group of academics and policy experts dealing with the impact of water scarcity and variability on the ability to jointly manage shared water and the derived welfare of international states and nations sharing international river basins, consisting of economics, technology, law and institutions, geography, and international relations. The book covers theoretical aspects of management of transboundary water as well as case studies from hotspots around the world. The unique aspect of this book is the multidisciplinary nature of the chapters, reflecting a new field of research that will gain popularity as water scarcity will increase over time and across regions. The chapters from the book were presented at the "Management of Transboundary Water Resources under Scarcity: Perspectives on Agriculture and Food Security" workshop held at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel, from June 22 to 23, 2015.

Die notwendige Revolution : Wie Individuen und Organisationen zusammenarbeiten, um eine nachhaltige Welt zu schaffen / von Peter M. Senge, Bryan Smith, Nina Kruschwitz, Joe Laur, Sara Schley Klimawandel, Raubbau an natürlichen Ressourcen, wachsende Müllberge, giftige Abfälle - die bestehenden und drohenden Krisen des Industriezeitalters fordern jeden Einzelnen zum Umdenken auf. Wie kann der notwendige radikale Wandel gelingen, der zu einem nachhaltigen Wirtschaften führt? Peter Senge und seine Koautoren liefern in diesem Buch nicht nur eine eindrucksvolle Bestandsaufnahme gegenwärtiger Krisen samt Entstehungsgeschichte. Sie führen auch ein neues Denken vor, das unser soziales und wirtschaftliches System als Teil eines größeren natürlichen Systems begreift. Mehr noch: Anhand zahlreicher Beispiele zeigen sie, dass die notwendige Revolution bereits in vollem Gange ist. Die Autoren - Organisationsberater und Wissenschaftler - berichten von den Erfahrungen erfolgreicher Vorreiter des Wandels, von Einzelpersonen und Organisationen, die mit innovativen Ansätzen und in kooperativen Partnerschaften und Netzwerken bereits an der kreativen Gestaltung einer nachhaltigen Welt arbeiten. Die Beispielgeschichten von Coca-Cola bis zum Chemiekonzern DuPont zeigen, dass nachhaltiges Handeln kein karitatives Unterfangen ist, sondern ein notwendiges Gebot für Unternehmen, die auch in Zukunft erfolgreich und konkurrenzfähig bleiben wollen. Die Beispiele werden ergänzt durch Tools zur Strategieplanung sowie praktische Anleitungen für erfolgreiche Veränderungsinitiativen und den Aufbau von Unternehmensnetzwerken. Aus dieser Kombination entsteht ein unentbehrliches Handbuch für alle, die eine nachhaltige Welt für uns und unsere Nachkommen schaffen wollen.

Konflikttheorien haben dabei keinen eigenständigen Status, sondern sind in andere Theorien als deren Aussagen über Konflikte integriert. Die einzelnen Beiträge, die in die Theorien einführen, sind einheitlich strukturiert und verfügen zudem über ein detailliertes und kommentiertes Literaturverzeichnis. Neben der Einführung in die Theorien demonstrieren die Beiträge auch deren Anwendungsmöglichkeit, indem sie exemplarisch einen Konflikt analysieren.

Das Buch führt ein in das zunehmend wichtige Feld ​der ökonomischen Nachhaltigkeit und verbindet verschiedene Disziplinen: Umweltwissenschaft, Umweltökonomie und Wirtschaftsökonomie sowie Wachstumstheorien. Da Nachhaltigkeit verschiedene Lesarten hat, verfolgt der Autor zwei Intentionen: eine Systematik in Maßnahmen, Modelle und Management der Nachhaltigkeit zu bringen sowie den Zugang zu diesem komplexen, interdisziplinären Thema zu erleichtern. Das Buch schließt eine Lücke zwischen den Disziplinen und wird damit zum wichtigsten Ratgeber derzeit, um die aktuellen Konzepte zu verstehen und anzuwenden. Als Lehrbuch konzipiert, ist es auch für gesellschaftlich Interessierte geschrieben. Zahlreiche, eigen erstellte Illustrationen visualisieren die Ausführungen.
