José Esteban Castro, Léo Heller, and María da Piedade Morais (Eds.), The Right to Water as Public Policy in Latin America: a Theoretical and Empirical Exploration [in Portuguese], Brasilia: Institute of Applied Economic Research (IPEA) – WATERLAT-GOBACIT Network, 2015. DOI: 10.5281/zenodo.55852. Available here in pdf and epub formats.
“This book, the result of a collaboration between IPEA’s Directorate of Regional, Urban, and Environmental Studies and Policies (DIRUR) and the WATERLAT-GOBACIT Network, addresses issues that are fundamental to understand the challenges facing, in practical terms, the materialization of public policies oriented towards implementing the human right to water. The chapters, focused on Latin American cases, have an interdisciplinary approach involving perspectives from Law, Anthropology, Economics, Sociology, Political Science, Geography, technical disciplines, specially Sanitary Engineering, and Public Policy more generally. We trust that the collection will make an important contribution to the contemporary debate over the design and implementation of public policies oriented at advancing the democratization of the management and the access to water in Brazil and worldwide. We wish you all a fruitful reading!” Jessé Souza, President, Institute of Applied Economic Research
