Water and water management in the Americas
IdeAs – Ideas of the Americas (https://journals.openedition.org/ideas/)
Guest editors: Vincent Dubreuil and François-Michel Le Tourneau
The question of water and water management is a crucial challenge in the Americas, especially in the wake of global climate change. The uncertainties about the evolution of rainfall and the rising demand for water from growing cities or agricultural areas make the water equation (i.e. matching supply and demand) ever more complex to solve. Excesses in shortages but also in abundance have resulted in the multiplication of “water crises” over the last two decades, justifying the growing attention to that topic from social sciences researchers.
