Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Growing global scarcity of water, population growth, economic development, and climate change are factors forcing a change in the way water resources are managed. Moreover, the circular economy demands interdisciplinary research and discussion on these complex relationships. This Special Issue aims to take an in-depth look at ‘’Water Economics and Water Distribution Management’’, and invites publications on the following topics related to water management: alternative sources, energy efficiency, the effectiveness of wastewater treatment infrastructure, costs evaluation, leakage control, stormwater drainage, the risk management of natural disasters, wastewater disposal, hydrology modelling, urban planning, water law and good governance, environmental and social impact assessments, or circular economy approaches.
