Abstract

Water insecurity has emerged as a major global issue. But there is very little discussion on how social policy can contribute to addressing water insecurity. This book critically discusses the relevance and importance of social policy and social policy practice for water issues. It analyses several complex interrelated perspectives on water and points out their implications for social policies and suggests core values and principles as bases for formulating and implementing social policies. Manohar Pawar argues for universal free access to safe drinking water for all, particularly for the most poor and disadvantaged. A framework for social policy action shows how multidisciplinary professionals can effectively participate to facilitate fair distribution of water to sustain ecosystems and realise the human right to water. Students and educators from a range of disciplines (sociology, social work, welfare, politics, economics, human geography, development studies, community development and law), policy makers in government and non-government organisations, and water workers will find this analysis particularly useful.
