Freshwater security is a highly important issue due to the severe consequences on human heath as well as economic and environmental activities. Water is important for sustainability, development, and human well-being. Drinking water security and safety should be the first priority for day-to-day management of water utilities. Water needs to be safeguarded against any kinds of threats, regardless of intended or otherwise. As water supply systems are complex, they face several risks. Many tools to are available to confront such risks and to safeguard water security. Collaboration across sectors and communities is required to ensure safe water for all.
In this context, this Special Issue aims to provide insights into new perspectives on water security management. Specific topics to be included are: drinking water supply, water security, water safety, simulation and optimization techniques, risk assessment tools, water quality, and risk management.
