Human Resources Development for the Water Sector in the Next Decade

Globalisation is not a single phenomena, and it has become a catch-all concept to describe a range of trends and forces that impact our environment in many ways. Economic globalisation, under the aegis of the so called neo-liberal economics, is a manifested shift from a world of distinct national economies to a global economy in which production is internationalised and financial capital flows freely and instantaneously between countries. Under the perspective of a global economy, water resources are impacted both directly and indirectly. The aim of the present paper is to identify those areas in water resource management where the global economy seems to be too unregulated to be considered sustainable
