Introduction : the debate on climate change and water security — Theory of scarcity-variability, conflict, and cooperation — Emergence of cooperation under scarcity and variability — Institutions and the stability of cooperative arrangements under scarcity and variability — Incentives to cooperate : political and economic instruments — Evidence-how do basin riparian countries cope with water scarcity and variability — Conclusion and policy implications;"International Water Scarcity and Variability considers international water management challenges created by water scarcity and environmental change. Although media coverage and some scholarship tend to cast natural resource shortages as leading inexorably toward war, Shlomi Dinar and Ariel Dinar prove that there are many examples of and mechanisms for more peaceful dispute resolution regarding natural resources, even in the face of water paucity and climate change. The authors base these arguments on both global empirical analyses and case studies. Using numerous examples that focus on North America, Europe, Central Asia, and the Middle East, this book asks scholars and policy makers to consider strategies and incentives to help lessen conflict and motivate cooperation under scarcity and increased variability of water resources"–Provided by ✅Publisher.
