Special Issue "Challenges for a Sustainable Water Use and Re-Use"
A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (10 December 2017)
This Special Issue will be comprised of selected papers from the proceedings of the conference WATER CHALLENGES IN XXI CENTURY, and the IWA conference that will be held in Livorno, 11–13 September 2017. The Special Issue aims to gather the experiences from several countries referring to sustainable water use, including the adoption of household devices for water savings, the levels of water tariff for disincentive water use, rationing, and new water sources, including desalinization and reuse of treated wastewater for agricultural and industrial purposes. The Special Issue also aims to select several contributions on water consumption accountability and disclosure practices on water use and reuse followed by institutions, public administrations, and firms.
Papers selected for this Special Issue will be subject to a rigorous peer review procedure with the aim of a wide dissemination of research results, developments and applications.
