Sick water? The central role of wastewater management in sustainable development Sick water? The central role of wastewater management in sustainable development
With global action and positive momentum towards improving access to safe water and sanitation, the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the UN Human Settlements Programme (UN-HABITAT), and the UN Secretary General?s Advisory Board on Water and Sanitation (UNSGAB), in partnership with the members of UN Water have collaborated to bring together their collective experience and expertise to bear on the challenges posed by illegal and unregulated wastewater.

    Good book! This reminds me of a case study we studied in class about Boston Harbor. Also I really like the case studies they put in the side panels and when they talk about environmental policy.
