In the 21st Century, the world will see an unprecedented migration of people moving from rural to urban areas. With global demand for water projected to outstrip supply in the coming decades, cities will likely face water insecurity as a result of climate change and the various impacts of urbanisation. Traditionally, urban water managers have relied on large-scale, supply-side infrastructural projects to meet increased demands for water; however, these projects are environmentally, economically and politically costly. Urban Water Security argues that cities need to transition from supply-side to demand-side management to achieve urban water security. This book provides readers with a series of in-depth case studies of leading developed cities, of differing climates, incomes and lifestyles from around the world, that have used demand management tools to modify the attitudes and behaviour of water users in an attempt to achieve urban water security. Urban Water Security will be of particular interest to town and regional planners, water conservation managers and policymakers, international companies and organisations with large water footprints, environmental and water NGOs, researchers, graduate and undergraduate students.

Seine Firma Bridgewater Associates ist der größte Hedgefonds der Welt, er selbst gehört zu den Top 50 der reichsten Menschen auf dem Planeten: Ray Dalio. Seit 40 Jahren führt er sein Unternehmen so erfolgreich, dass ihn Generationen von Nachwuchsbankern wie einen Halbgott verehren. Mit "Die Prinzipien des Erfolgs" erlaubt er erstmals einen Blick in seine sonst so hermetisch abgeriegelte Welt. Seine Beobachtungen aus dem Geschäftsleben hielt Ray Dalio schon als junger Unternehmer in einem Notizbuch fest. Das war die Geburtsstunde seiner gut 200 "Prinzipien", die mit diesem Buch erstmals gebündelt vorliegen und kaum weniger als die Essenz des geradezu unheimlichen Erfolgs von Ray Dalio und seiner Firma darstellen. Kern dieser Prinzipien ist eine stetige Verbesserung durch radikale Transparenz und Wahrhaftigkeit, eine Art "Ideen-Meritokratie ", also eine Atmosphäre, in der sich die besten Ideen durchsetzen. Die einzigartigen Prinzipien, mithilfe derer jeder den Weg des Erfolgs einschlagen kann, und die mitunter harten Lektionen, die ihn sein einzigartiges System errichten ließen, hat Ray Dalio auf eine bisher noch nie dagewesene, unkonventionelle Weise zusammengetragen.
