Sustainable water engineering

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Contemporary water engineering extends beyond the traditional teachings of hydrology and hydraulics to incorporate environmental, technological, managerial, cultural, and societal issues. Current and anticipated water crises can be deemed the intended and/or unintended consequences of long-term changes (i.e. slow evolution) of social norms and values (or more broadly, culture), ideology or political systems, which are not typically anticipated
or accounted for in coping with water‐related issues. The recognition and integration of these issues allows water engineers to understand, unravel and contribute towards solving both local and global challenges, and make a stepwise change in the delivery of sustainable infrastructure, sustainable buildings, sustainable businesses, and sustainable behaviours.
