Welcome to Green Frigate

Titles published under the Green Frigate Books imprint aim to explore the horizons of the natural and built environments, and the relations of humans within them. The goal of the imprint is to reach its readership by producing works that fall in the cracks between those offered by traditional academic and popular presses. Specific categories include ‘Design, Interiors and Architecture’ and ‘The natural and built environments’. In common with Libri Books, the imprint should be of interest particularly for members of ‘communities of practice’ in the natural and built environments.

Canada’s Water, Yours to Protect: A Primer on Planning Together

Canada’s Water, Yours to Protect acknowledges the problems besetting our water resources and the role government must play. But these are changing times. In response, this book is about the success of collaboration driven by passion for place and encourages citizens to come together to plan for the future of t heir water. In this regard, the book transcends it country of application and offers insight to all nations struggling to more effectively manage their water resources. To give context and help achieve this goal, the book explains who does what and why, and what the future challenges are for eight issues we, regardless of what country we reside in, now collectively face:

  • Deeply-entrenched water allocation systems
  • Ill-protected groundwater supplies
  • Full-cost water pricing versus water conservation
  • Aquatic ecosystem protection
  • Safety from flood damages
  • Future dam construction
  • Control of water export
