About This Topic

Countries over the globe might be wet, semi-wet, arid or semi-arid. Some other countries are hyper-wet and some others are hyper-arid. The unequal distribution of water resources over the globe make many countries suffer from aridity. Therefore, the idea of this special issue is born to help all these to manage their water resources sustainability.

Therefore, the Special Issue aims at gathering researchers and scientists and inviting them to submit high-quality original research articles and state-of-the-art reviews on the topic around the globe to cover the following topics (but not limited to):

Assessment of Water Resources and their monitoring.
Current status of water resources and water balance.
Optimal allocation of Water Resources.
GIS and RS to optimize the water resources usage.
Developing alternative water resources
Rainfall harvesting and utilization
Stormwater harvesting and watershed modeling.
Water use efficiency using modern irrigation systems and ICT.
Groundwater modeling sustainability
Low-cost wastewater treatment for irrigation.
Irrigation best practices and water use optimization.
Watershed management.
Greenhouse as a tool to save more water and increase water productivity
Water and climate change mitigation and/or adaptation.

Open Access Research Article

Saving is Losing: Pumping Cost vs. GHG Emissions in Water Distribution Systems

Received: 26 May 2023;  Published: 21 November 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2304037


Global climate change has necessitated the reduction of GHG emissions. Water distribution system (WDS) pumping adds to these emissions and, therefore, should be reduced. Under electricity hourly cost tariffs, utilities are incentivized to pump during the nighttime hours. This can have a deleterious effect, however, on GHG emissions [...]

The Eastern Australian Floods of February 2022 and Its Relationship with Climate Change

Received: 19 October 2022;  Published: 07 April 2023;  doi: 10.21926/jept.2302014


During February 2022 major riverine flooding occurred in an area which has the fastest population growth in Australia. This extended from the Mary River in Southeast Queensland (SEQ) to the Clarence River in Northeast NSW (NENSW). Two centres within this area were devastated by floods unprecedented in living memory. One was the Brisbane Metrop [...]
