Details

Water is our most vital resource. The growing demands made by an increasing number of people adopting urban lifestyles and Western diets, coupled with a changing and less predictable climate, are putting pressure on the planet’s freshwater supply as never before. By 2025, four billion people may be living in conditions of water stress. And, even where water is plentiful, the poor are unlikely to have ready access to a safe, cheap supply.

Completely updated, the new edition of this groundbreaking atlas maps the competing claims on limited water supplies – made by farmers, industrialists and householders – and investigates the uses and abuses of the resource, as well as the vexed question of how it can be equitably managed.

Highly visual and graphically stimulating, this Atlas maintains this series reputation for making complex issues and data accessible.

Topics include: water shortages, excessive demands, climate impacts, water footprints, conflict and co-operation, dam construction, pollution, fragile ecosystems, access to water and sanitation, water pricing and privatization, integrated water management.
