This is an engaging book that makes sense of the complex dynamics between water and energy. Michael has provided a clear examination of the issues of providing adequate energy and water for the world's growing population.

He acknowledges the challenges we face and offers thoughtful scientific and policy-based solutions. Highly by: 9. policy issues associated with water, energy, and environment. recommendations for moving forward. There are a number of books on pieces of the nexus, most at a technical level.

The purpose of this book is to explain the nexus and each of its components in a university-level, highly-readable ‘primer’ for those entering the water and energy fields.

It is remarkable that due to increasing specialization among professionals in the different fields, water and energy are not optimized jointly. energy of flowing water gets transformed into potential energy. The water from the high level in the dam is carried through pipes, to the turbine, at the bottom of the dam (Fig.
