• Abstract

    The recognition of the importance of sustainable water management has increased due to the emergence and strong focus on the Sustainable Development Goal. Consequently, there has been progress in understanding various disciplines, specifically aimed at addressing concerns related to water consumption and pressure, sustainable water generation, and the sustainable administration of water resources. Therefore, the aim of this article is to bridge the gap by using a bibliometric approach to analyse the number of contributions and their impact on the literature regarding awareness of sustainable water management in the field of management sciences. This study seeks to identify areas of research that can be further explored to improve the existing literature on this emerging subject through a critical analysis of articles obtained from the Scopus database. It is important to note that sustainable water management and awareness are two interconnected and crucial domains that play a vital role in ensuring the sustainable use of water resources and promoting public health. The uniqueness of this study is of great importance for scholars, researchers, and policymakers in the field of management sciences as it presents a comprehensive research agenda on the awareness of sustainable water management.
