About this product
- DescriptionFloods are amongst the most common and devastating natural disasters. In the wake of such an event, the pressure to initiate flood protection schemes that will provide security is ermous, and politicians promise quick solutions in the national interest. Jeroen Warner examines a number of such projects from around the world - the Middle East, South Asia and Western Europe - aimed at the prevention of serious flooding. Each provoked a level of controversy unforeseen by its initiators, with the result that schemes were shelved, were t completed, or simply failed. The author shows how such projects inevitably become politicized as different stakeholders seek to promote their interests.
- Author BiographyJeroen Warner is Assistant Professor of Disaster Studies at Wageningen University in the Netherlands. He has written extensively on the politics of water and is editor of 'Multi-Stakeholder Platforms for Integrated Catchment Management' and co-editor of 'The Politics of Water'.
