Artificial or Constructed Wetlands: A Suitable Technology for Sustainable Water Management

The UNESCO Chair on Sustainability has collaborated with the chapter "REAGRITECH Project: Regeneration and Reuse of Runoff and Drainage Water from Agriculture by Treatment Wetlands" on the new book Artificial or Constructed Wetlands, a Suitable Technology for Sustainable Water Management", edited by CRC Press.

Artificial or constructed wetlands are an emerging technology particularly for tropical areas with water scarcity. For big cities, the sustainable management of water resources taking into account proper use is always challenging. The book presents case studies illustrating the above.

As plants and microorganisms are a fundamental part of the correct functioning of these systems, their contribution to the degradation of the organic matter and to the removal and transformation of the pollutant compounds present in the wastewaters is also a highlight of this book.

The book editors are María del Carmen Durán-Domínguez-de-Bazúa, Amado Enrique Navarro-Frómeta, Josep M. Bayona.
