Record #188361:

Glaciers and efficient water use in Central Asia / Urs Luterbacher, and 3 others.

Title: Glaciers and efficient water use in Central Asia / Urs Luterbacher, and 3 others.
Author(s): Luterbacher, Urs.
Date: 2008.
Publisher: California: University of California Press
In: Darkening peaks : glacier retreat, science and society. (2008.),
Abstract: Notes potential for conflict as regions formerly interdependent within Soviet system vie as autonomous entities for water for irrigation and energy production. Examines role of glacier meltwater in water resources, and politics and economics associated with water resources. Notes difficulty of defining and enforcing property rights for flowing water, and need to encourage efficiency of use. Examines future water resource potential, based on current and projected water contents of key glaciers, and explores future developments in region using empirical analysis based on present conditions and socioeconomic models. Makes concrete proposals for solving water management problems, including development of Kyrgystan's hydropower.
