Scholarly interest in water ethics has recently :increased dramatically, but challenges of practical implementation remain. Issues such as climate change, water scarcity, privatisation and conflict over water resources have heightened this interest, especially where outcomes are environmentally unsustainable or socially unjust. This book assesses the implications of this research for global water ethics and the idea of a water ethics charter. :

As a result, the book offers contributions both regarding the difficult ethical and epistemological questions of 'water ethics' in a global context, as well as contributions from a local, directly-empirical perspective. The latter include case study chapters focused on a range of countries including Canada, China, Germany, India, South Africa and the USA. The respective insights are brought together in the final section regarding the practical project of a 'water ethics charter' as well as theoretical questions about the legitimacy of a global water ethics.
