  • L'eauby David B. Brooks

    International Development Research Centre 2002; US$ 15.00

    Aujourd'hui, l'accès à l'eau potable fait défaut à plus d'un milliard de personnes. Au cours des 25 prochaines années, le tiers de la population mondiale fera face à une grave pénurie d'eau. De toute évidence, les inégalités quant à la disponibilité et à l'approvisionnement d'eau douce sont une question de vie ou de mort, et constituent, en matière... more...

  • Waterby David B. Brooks

    International Development Research Centre 2002; US$ 20.00

    Today, more than 1 billion people lack access to safe drinking water. Within the next 25 years, fully one-third of the world’s population will experience severe water scarcity. It is clear that disparities in the availability and supply of fresh water are truly a matter of life and death, and constitute one of the great governance imperatives of our... more...

  • Supply and Competition in Minor Metalsby David B. Brooks

    Taylor and Francis 2015; US$ 38.01

    An interest in the minor metals – termed "minor" as their annual production is relatively small – had been developing for many years. This study, first published in 1965, examines patterns of supply that can be identified as underlying the production of minor metals, and then uses these patterns to investigate the nature and degree of competition... more...

    Only a few economists have vigorously dealt with mineral economics. Among these few, Orris C. Herfindahl has probably probed the most deeply. This volume, originally published in 1974, presents Herfindahl’s most significant and enlightening contributions to the field of resource economics. This title will be of interest to students of environmental... more...

  • Water Balances in the Eastern Mediterraneanby David B. Brooks; Ozay Mehmet

    International Development Research Centre 2000; US$ 25.00

    The roots of destabilization, migration, and local conflict around the world can often be traced to a lack of fresh water. As a result, the importance of fresh water to economic development, quality of life, ecosystem sustainability, and political stability is gaining renewed global recognition. In the Middle East and the countries of the Eastern Mediterranean... more...

  • Watershedby Stephen C. Lonergan; David B. Brooks

    International Development Research Centre 1995; US$ 25.00

    Watershed describes the water crisis faced by Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories today ; a crisis that will have much to do with the design and the success of the current peace proposals. The authors examine the geopolitics of water in the region, the economic importance, problems of water supply and water quality, and regional conflicts... more...

  • Making the Most of the Water We Haveby Oliver Brandes; David B. Brooks; Stephen Gurman

    Taylor and Francis 2009; US$ 48.51

    Based on the �soft path� approach to the energy sector, a transition is now under way to a soft path for water. This approach starts by ensuring that ecosystem needs for water are satisfied and then undertakes a radical approach to reducing human uses of water by economic and social incentives, including open decision-making, water markets and equitable... more...

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2003; US$ 40.50

    In the past fifty years, the standard of living in most industrialized nations has risen dramatically, but the number of people describing themselves as content has remained steady or fallen.
