Blue Ethics: Perspectives on Sustainable, Fair Water Resources Use and Management touch upon a debate locked between two opposing theories: the universal right of access to water and economic realism. The sustainable use of resources that come under pressure, in terms of extraction, allocation and recycling looks like a technical issue, not to say a technocratic one. This multi-authored book claims the opposite. The many issues faced by poor access to water, as well as the sustainable use of resources, rely on open negotiations, settling conflicts, tariffs and infrastructure while expanding delivery and managing fairly water scarcity. In all these processes, ethical values do matter.
