Stockholm Water Front No. 1 2011

In this issue of Stockholm Water Front we try to grasp lessons from unconventional plans to address water for urban centres in Australia, California and Jordan. As these plans differ immensely in medium-to-long term scope they deal with water scarcity in urbanising regions with holistically different ways. We also touch on the surface of the fresh water lake’s interdependent relationship with human activities – a research topic that the 2011 Stockholm Water Laureate is deeply involved in, and one that gives ecology a rightful voice in the debate on the theme of the 2011 World Water Week in Stockholm, “water in an urbanising world.”
