Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The past decade has witnessed a major global shift in thinking about water, including the role that water infrastructure plays in sustainable development. This rethinking aims to balance better the social, economic, and environmental performance aspects in the development and management of large dams. Infrastructure strategies must complement strategies for water, environment, and energy security and for emerging concerns to reduce vulnerability in water resource systems to climate change on the horizon. Communication is central to multi-stakeholder dialogue and partnerships at all levels needed to achieve sustainability and governance reform in water resource management and infrastructure provision. At the same time, communication drives the advocacy to mobilize political will and public support for beneficial change and continuous improvement in practices. This case study emphasizes that is not only important to mobilize all opportunities to reconcile water demand and supply in river basins that are coming under increasing levels of water stress, but also to integrate effectively governance and anti-corruption reforms and sustainability improvements into all stages of the planning and project cycle adding value for stakeholders.

Book News Annotation:

This volume presents a detailed account of the process surrounding the proposal of the Berg water project, based upon three areas of focus: communication with government and the public, sustainability issues, and integrated water management. Designed to supply the greater Cape Town metropolitan area in South Africa, the case study usefully describes the steps involved in project planning, including criteria for alleviating poverty while also attending to environmental concerns. The importance of communication is a central theme. Appendices detail planning, budget, integration, and communication strategies. Not indexed.
