Summary From the Forward: "Contemporary groundwater management has moved well beyond a concern with how much water is stored underground or can be extracted from aquifers. Today we recognise that integrated, effective and efficient groundwater management relies on pulling together work in a variety of disciplines such as climate science, ecology, socioeconomics, public policy and law, as well as hydrogeology. However, whilst we realise the importance of multiple perspectives and a diversity of contexts and data, the challenge of integrating and organising all of this information into a decision making framework remains. It is also abundantly clear that sharing and access to water is a fundamentally political issue and that solutions depend on full engagement of stakeholders as well as mobilisation of knowledge and technologies."
