Kurzbeschreibung

This book elaborates how water, soil, and waste may be managed in a nexus and how this approach may help combat global change. In addition to providing a brief account on nexus thinking and how it may help us tackle issues important to the world community such as food security, the book presents the environmental resource perspective of three main aspects of global change: climate change, urbanization, and population growth.Taking as its point of departure the thematic discussions of the Dresden Nexus Conference (DNC 2015) held in March 2015, the book presents the perspectives of a number of thought leaders on how the nexus approach could contribute to sustainable environmental resource management.The
first chapter provides an introduction to the issues and consent of the book.
Chapters 2 and 3 focus on climate change adaptation. Chapters 4 and 5 discuss
the role of urbanization as a main driver of global change. The last two
chapters of the book present ideas on how the nexus approach may be used to
cope with population growth and increased demand for resources.
