This paper seeks to contribute to pipeline leakage detection research through collecting and simulating leakage signals under different pressure strengths by combining experiments with numerical simulation. The findings point towards better detection in a real noise environment. Such research is vital in the context of increasing worldwide demand for water and insufficient water supply caused by pipeline leakage.
This chapter aligns with SDGs 3 and 6 by examining the relative capacity and capability of developing nations to adapt to hydrological variability arising from climate change and to study the challenges faced by developing economies to mitigate the impact of climate change on water resources.
This chapter aligns with SDGs 3 and 6 by examining how changes in precipitation, land use, EWEs, and necessary pollution control will force changes in how we farm.
The authors put forward a mathematical model for examining the impact of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services on reducing the transmission of waterborne diseases such as enteric diarrheal disease (EDD). It is found that wastewater and sewage treatment (WST) control has the most significant impact in terms of WASH interventions employed. The findings have could have very important public health potential and tie in strongly with the goals of SDG 6.
Pakistan's water resources experiencing mounting pressure. UN SDG 6 provides a roadmap for achieving sustainable water management. Long-term planning and community engagement are key to success. Policy recommendations include efficient pricing and climate change integration.
The authors evaluate shifts in water reservoirs (i.e. atmospheric versus terrestrial and underground water storage). Projections indicate water storage deficits in most Southern Hemisphere basins during the summer.
This study supports SDGs 3, 6, and 14 by highlighting the importance of freshwater biodiversity for human and planetary health, and suggesting that local and regional efforts for monitoring and improving ecosystem health are essential for reversing the current crisis in this area.
Water-smart society must highlight societal well-being and co-development across sectors. Furthermore, the article emphasizes the need for a long-term perspective, conserving nature, and maximising ecosystem services, while anticipating change. Finally, the article discusses how a more grounded conceptualisation of the water-smart society can guide utilities and urban policy design.
The paper outlines how we may advances in observational technologies with developments in water quality modelling to integrate simulation of eutrophication impacts with organic matter dynamics and fate of synthetic toxic compounds.
This study supports SDG 3, 6, and 16 by providing a comprehensive quantitative analysis of the association between conflict and the incidence of cholera in Yemen, highlighting how conflict-related destruction has compounded water, sanitation, and hygiene issues in Yemen.
