Due to increasing water demand from human activities, water scarcity is an increasing problem, particularly under the risks of climate change. Increasing water demand also increases pressure on watersheds, given the geographical overlap between agriculture; hydropower, mining, tourism, and urban population. This pressure can also extend to social-environmental conflicts related to water availability, particularly when multiple users share the same location. These potential water imbalances have driven political discussion towards more focus on water governance issues and the role of Nations/States in also allocating and prioritising water’s rights as human rights.
The focus of this Special Issue is on reduction of water consumption by water recovery and recycling as tool for water management. The reduction of water consumption through water reuse and recycling are key challenges for industrial, sanitary, mining and agriculture water resource activities.
It is hoped that this Special Issue of Recycling will provide useful insights into the latest management, technology, and operational innovations to improve water management and resource recovery promoting industrial water management resilience across the world.
