Article
A strong relationship exists between cultural diversity and disaster preparedness. However, there is not much literature conducted globally regarding the correlation between the two factors and as for Punjab (Pakistan), no studies were found. Based on the knowledge-gaps identified, this research study creates a culture-based approach to measure flo...
Article
Interviews were undertaken with expert bridge designers to reveal their opinions on environmental considerations and the possibility of integrating life-cycle assessment into the bridge design process. Bridge designers were generally found to consider that the need for the bridge, access for future maintenance, use of quality materials, longevity,...
Article
Full-text available
Bridge maintenance activities are important to consider within sustainable development due to the cost and environmental impact associated with various maintenance activities. Comparisons have been made between different bridge structural forms, based on materials, components and construction method, but less information is available on bridge main...
Article
Despite landfills having the potential to pollute the environment both during their operation and long after they have ceased to receive waste, they remain a dominant waste management option, particularly in the UK. In order to combat the environmental pollution caused by landfills, risk analysis is increasingly being employed through computer mode...
Article
For the successful completion of a risk analysis process, its foundation (i.e. a baseline study) has to be well established. For this purpose, a baseline study needs to be more integrated than ever, particularly when environmental legislation is increasingly becoming stringent and integrated. This research investigates and concludes that no clear e...

Chapter
Full-text available
Ecosystem services comprise the interconnected human benefits provided by the natural world, spanning interlinked value systems and societal needs. Tools to expose the wider ramifications of policies, designs and actions, also highlighting the benefits and opportunities of systemic practice, are needed to promote systemic, sustainable practice. Wat...
Chapter
Society is moving from management addressing single or few outcomes towards recognition that all interventions have systemic impacts. Water management in urban environments presents particular challenges related to growing populations in finite land areas. Several sustainable drainage system (SuDS) techniques, from drainage-specific approaches to s...
Article
Full-text available
A water-secure world is one where everyone has access to safe, affordable water, protected from floods, droughts and water-borne diseases. Urban water security means that urban water systems should not have negative environmental effects, even over a long time perspective, while providing required services, protecting human health and the environme...
Article
There is growing awareness and public concern about environmental impacts of waste management and disposal. Environmental policy instruments have been strengthened and associated governmental programmes have increased in recent years, resulting in high level strategies for waste management. Risk assessment is now an essential tool in the prioritisa...
Article
In industrialised countries water service providers (WSPs) must provide an appropriate level of service with an acceptable performance at an acceptable cost to customers. In the UK a move towards sustainable development is now also a major goal for WSPs. However, the imposition of institutional systems and regulatory targets still encourage the ado...
Article
The search for sustainable ways of living has necessitated a new look at the way in which water services are provided. The new paradigm includes whole-system perspectives for each of the primary criteria groups: social, environmental and economic. Whilst Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) techniques have been used successfully for products, they are much le...
Conference Paper
Effective Integrated Water Management (IWM) is an aspiration for all those engaged in water service provision, and is a key component of the World Water Vision. Part of this includes the sustainability of water systems and their interaction with other urban systems. In the urban drainage field, there are many examples of attempts to establish effec...
Article
The movement of large organic solids in sewers has not been studied until recently. New European Regulations require that these solids are controlled so as not to be seen in the environment once escaped from combined sewer overflows. Hence there is now a greater imperative to understand how these solids move and are discharged from sewer networks....

The search for sustainable ways of living has necessitated a new look at the way in which water services are provided. The new paradigm includes whole-system perspectives for each of the primary spheres: social, environmental and economic. Whilst LCA techniques have been used successfully for products, they are much less used to assess processes. N...
Article
In combined systems during rainfall events, surface washoff takes place. As a result, sediment and litter are carried into combined sewer systems, mainly through highway gully pots. There is a high probability that these solids may cause a loss of capacity in the sewer (due to solids deposition) or they may escape via overflow discharges during sto...

Apologies for a late reply. I am working in more than one topics as my research interests are a wide spectrum including: water, energy, water & energy nexus, carbon and ecological footprint, obsolescence, climate change (drivers, impacts, mitigation and adaptation), flood, risk assessment, sustainability, health and safety, coastal vulnerability, etc. Sorry for the long list!
