Tapping the Oceans: Seawater Desalination and the Political Ecology of Water

Joe Williams (Editor), Erik Swyngedouw (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportEdited book

Abstract

Increasingly, water-stressed cities are looking to the oceans to fix unreliable, contested and over-burdened water supply systems. Desalination technologies are, however, also becoming the focus of intense political disagreements about the sustainable and just provision of urban water. Through a series of cutting-edge case studies and multi-subject approaches, this book explores the political and ecological debates facing water desalination on a broad geographical scale.
