Legal and Policy Frameworks for the Management of Wastewater

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


Legal frameworks for the management of wastewater involve, on the one hand, the development and enforcement of detailed and often technical rules relating to environmental protection, public health and hazardous substances. On the other hand, wastewater management can be seen as a way of closing loops (in the water cycle, for nutrient management or as a source of energy) and contributing to a wide range of global and local policy goals around resource management and sustainable development. This chapter will analyse the former, in the context of the latter, and beginning with that policy context.
