About this book

This book describes a pathway for sustainable phosphorus management via the Global Transdisciplinary Processes for Sustainable Phosphorus Management project (Global TraPs). Global TraPs is a multi-stakeholder forum in which scientists from a variety of disciplines join with key actors in practice to jointly identify critical questions and to articulate what new knowledge, technologies and policy processes are needed to ensure that future phosphorus use is sustainable, improves food security and environmental quality and provides benefits for the poor. The book offers insight into economic scarcity and identifies options to improve efficiency and reduce environmental impacts of anthropogenic phosphorus flows at all stages of the supply and use chain.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This book, edited by Scholz (ETH Zurich, Switzerland) et al., is the product of an international project related to phosphorus supply, management, use, and dissipation. … The book is well documented with many good citations and references and provides a valuable review of what is known about this important element. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above.” (L. E. Erickson, Choice, Vol. 52 (5), January, 2015)
