CFP for a Special Issue of Water International: Mining and Water Resource Management: Problem or Solution?
Guest editors: Anthony Turton, Surina Esterhuyse and David Brooks
This Special Issue will focus specifically on highlighting areas of concern related to mining and water resources and also how mining-related water impacts can be minimized or mitigated. The policy implications of water-related mining problems and solutions should also be highlighted. Original contributions on novel technical or institutional approaches that not only mitigate the water impacts of a mine but also benefit the broader society and ensure sustainable development, are especially welcome.
