Building Water Resilience for Human Prosperity. a book that introduces a new framework for water governance and management. Water is the bloodstream of nature and wise stewardship of freshwater, from the very local to the regional, is central to human development and prosperity. But over-use and mismanagement of freshwater resources now threatens the functioning of ecosystems that are crucial to human activities. “Water is key for maintaining and enhancing the resilience of social-ecological systems that we depend on,” says centre director Johan Rockström. He is the lead author of the book Water Resilience for Human Prosperity, which is written together with colleagues from the Stockholm Resilience Centre, Stockholm Environment Institute and the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. The book analyses the problems and provides examples of successful water resource management.
