"The authors correctly note that, while people will generally want higher water quality, there are numerous trade-offs that would diminish their willingness to change behaviours that negatively affect water quality and quantity. Water pollution could thus be regarded as a `market failure', requiring intervention by policymakers such as regulation, incentives and voluntary agreements with land users, self-regulation, education campaigns, etc." - African Journal of Aquatic Science, John P Simaika, Stellenbosch University, South Africa "The book will be particularly useful to those engaged in Catchment Partnerships through Defra's Catchment Based Approach (CaBA) programme, whether in pointing out ways forward or giving confidence that persistence with building communites of practice will gain success in the longer term - anyone strarting in catchment management will soon realise that developments do not happen overnight!" - Bob Harris, Costal Futures
