The book series provides a source of valuable information for small communities with decentralized water supply and sanitation up to large industries that employ many professionals in each of the countries worldwide working in the different fields of freshwater production, wastewater treatment and water reuse. In contrast to many other industries, which suffer from the global economic downturn observed in many countries, water and wastewater industries form a fast growing sector and provide significant investment opportunities and markets. This applies especially to those using sustainable water and wastewater technologies, which are increasingly favoured. Key market drivers are demographic and, in particular economic growth in urban and per urban areas together with increasing water scarcity, increasing water needs for food production, increasing awareness to treat or to improve treatment of wastewater along with increasingly stringent and influential regulations regarding nutrient limits on wastewater discharges or the elimination the option of easily treated wastewater discharges, and the establishment of international targets. A key goal of the Series is to unite all countries of the globe to jointly address the challenges of water security and sanitation. Therefore the aim is to achieve a healthy balance in authors and editors originating from developing and developed countries as well as gender equality.
This potential audience consists of professionals from the water and wastewater industry, but also communities, manufacturers and consultants as well as a diversity of stakeholders and professionals from governmental and non-governmental organizations, international funding agencies, universities, public health and other relevant institutions, and the broader public. It is designed to increase awareness and understanding of sustainable water and wastewater solutions including the promotion of water and wastewater reuse.
