Urban Water Poverty

International Journal of Urban Sustainable Development cover
A special issue of the International Journal of Urban Sustainable Development

A special issue of IJUSD covering Urban Water Poverty was edited by Adriana Allen (DPU) and Sarah Bell (CEGE). The special issue built on work supported by the UCL Grand Challenge of Sustainable Cities: a Public Panel discussion (pdf) and an Expert Symposium, led by Adriana Allen and Sarah Bell

This publication brings together diverse interdisciplinary perspectives seeking answers to the following questions:

  • What do we know about urban water poverty and how to tackle it?
  • What additional conceptual frameworks can shed light into the way in which water material and immaterial flows produce cities and accumulation and deprivation within them?
  • What needs to be done differently if we are to put this knowledge into practice up to and beyond 2015?

More information about the supporting events can be found on the Urban Water Poverty Project Page.
