Discover the Editor's Choice: From each issue of the leading journal Water Supply the core team of editors select one outstanding paper to share across IWA Publishing platforms.
IWA Publishing is pleased to announce that the 2nd Editor's Choice Paper, chosen by Andrea Capodaglio, is now Open Access:
Ze Huang, Jiahong Liu, Chao Mei, Hao Wang and Weiwei Shao
Why was this paper selected for Editor's Choice?
I have chosen the paper Water security evaluation based on comprehensive index in”Jing-JinLi” district, China by Huang et al., as it addresses an issue of some importance in the management and security of water resources. My idea was to look for a paper that went beyond a specific detailed case study, which could be an example for solving standing problems in general contexts. This paper presents a general multi-criteria water security evaluation index methodology applied to a specific case in the Jing-Jin-Ji district, China, that could, however, be applied elsewhere. The methodology considers the impact of human activities on the spatial distribution of water resources, and forecasts and evaluates future scenarios.
