Vol 2 No 2 - Water For Life

Issued: 1993 (40 pages)

Only 3 per cent of the water on the planet is fresh and less than one per cent of that is relatively easily available. This issue of the magazine looks at a world running out of water, a situation even more urgent today than it was 20 years ago. Our correspondents in Ghana, Kenya and Nigeria tell the story of the local search for water. Malin Falkenmark spells out the big regional picture, David Satterthwaite looks at the developing world’s urban water crisis and other reports come from China,the American West, Pakistan, Rajasthan, Colombia, Israel, Niger and southern Africa.
