Publication Date: 09/29/09
Water is already a critical factor affecting the social and economic well-being of a sizable proportion of the world’s population. However, with the world’s population projected to double in over the next fifty years, and water supplies becoming both more scarce and more volatile as a result of global warming, we are likely to face a water crisis so severe it will reshape everything from our governance structures to our modes of economic and agricultural production to our patterns of social interaction. Water will be the axis around which much of public policy revolves.
