Présentation
Tomorrow’s global water crisis will directly or indirectly threaten every nation and virtually every individual. In Out of Water, internationally respected water expert Colin Chartres reveals the breadth, depth, and danger of the growing “water gap,” explaining why soaring demand and plummeting availability are converging to make it even worse.
Chartres doesn’t stop there, however. He introduces real, practical, proven solutions. Out of Waterbrings the global debate about water resources to a higher level, identifying workable reforms and incentives that can dramatically improve water usage efficiency and ensure adequate, healthy water for everyone.
