“Reviving the Dying Giant” – Springer edited volume on IWRM in the Zayandeh Rud catchment
Landmark of the historical city of Isfahan, lifeline of an entire region, and almost vanished: The Zayandeh Rud River in Central Iran is dying. The reasons are climate change and a wasteful use of water resources. Since 2010 a German-Iranian project team has been working on solutions for sustainable resource management for saving the river from complete drying out. The results of the first project phase have now been published in an edited volume. They show how progress in water management can be achieved and sustained by combining modern environmental engineering, new management approaches and local know-how.
The book “Reviving the Dying Giant“ presents the results of the first project phase and is thus the first publication attending to the Zayandeh Rud from various perspectives. In 16 chapters, the 25 German and Iranian authors present their approaches and proposed solutions for saving the river from dying. In his preface, the Iranian Minister of Energy Hamid Chitchian also highlights the importance of the Zayandeh Rud for the entire country. The book is available as eBook and printed version.
