Complex infrastructural networks provide critical services to cities but can be vulnerable to external stresses,
including climatic variability. This vulnerability has also challenged past urban settlements, but its role in cases
of historic urban demise has not been precisely document
ed. We transform archeological data from the medieval
Cambodian city of Angkor into a numerical model that allows us to quantify topological damage to critical urban
infrastructure resulting from climatic variability. Our model reveals unstable behavior in which extensive and cas-
cading damage to infrastructure occurs in response to flooding within Angkor
s urban water management system.
The likelihood and extent of the cascading failure abrupt
ly grow with the magnitude of flooding relative to normal

Too many people still lack access to safely managed water supplies and sanitation facilities. Water scarcity, flooding and lack of proper wastewater management also hinder social and economic development. Increasing water efficiency and improving water management are critical to balancing the competing and growing water demands from various sectors and users.
In 2015, 29 per cent of the global population lacked safely managed drinking water supplies, and 61 per cent were without safely managed sanitation services. In 2015, 892 million people continued to practise open defecation.
In 2015, only 27 per cent of the population in LDCs had basic handwashing facilities.
Preliminary estimates from household data of 79 mostly high- and high-middle-income countries (excluding much of A

This paper uses company experiences from Mongolia, Peru, South Africa, Canada, and the Upper Hunter Valley and Fitzroy regions of Australia to identify key lessons learned.
Access to clean water is at the very core of sustainable development. As a water-dependent sector, mining and metals companies are well placed to support collective solutions to shared water challenges; contributing to improved water security and sanitation for all.
Shared Water, Shared Responsibility, Sha[...]

Technological knowledge created through government R&D investment not only contributes to technology and market expansion, but is also a major factor in evaluating a nation’s innovation capacity. As government budgets are limited, establishing an effective investment strategy is important. The purpose of this paper is to suggest R&D investment priorities in terms of the centrality of knowledge diffusion—which technology field is targeted in knowledge diffusion—and rapidity of knowledge diffusion—how quickly technological knowledge diffuses.
The analysis focused on a water resources R&D program led by the Korean government. The ce

We review the increasing body of research on urban water security. First, we reflect on the four different focusses in water security literature: welfare, equity, sustainability
and water-related risks.Second,wemake aninventory of the multiple perspectives on urban water security: disciplinary perspectives (e.g. engineering, environmental, public policy, public health), problem-oriented perspectives (e.g. water shortage, flooding, water pollution), goal-oriented perspectives (e.g. better water supply and sanitation, better sewerage and wastewater treatment, safety from flooding, proper
urban drainage), integrated-water versus water-integrated perspectives, and policy analytical versus governance perspectives. Third, we take a systems perspective on urban water security, taking the pressure
