The neglected costs of water peace
Published Online: Oct 11 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1316
The argument that countries do not go at war for water because it is more convenient to resort to cooperation, technology and international trade, is a partial description which does not take into account several critical elements. In particular, there is a dynamic that we believe has strong relevance, and yet is neglected: as virtual water is imported by countries through international trade, a competition over water may arise or intensify in the exporting country, particularly if it affects regions with limited freshwater resources.

Zones of untreatable water pollution call for better appreciation of mitigation limits and opportunities
Published Online: Jul 11 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1312
Nutrients and pollutants from earlier land‐surface inputs may have accumulated in subsurface legacy sources that add to current waterborne loads. We have developed a diagnostic test to guide effective, spatially differentiated mitigation measures to (sub)catchment zones without dominant legacy sources.

Focus Article

Infrastructure disarray in the clean Ganga and clean India campaigns
Published Online: Sep 14 2018
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1310
The Nagwa drain in Varanasi where Dr. Mishra carried out his flow measurements.This paper argues that infrastructure disarray rather than infrastructure gap is a more useful notion for framing the challenges and conditions of wastewater management in India today. Taking disarray as a condition of infrastructure confusion among overlapping and disconnected segments of the sewage services chain, the cases show how nonstate actors and their communities are confronting disarray, reproducing these conditions of disarray, or grappling with ways to overcome this disarray.
