One of the most pressing issues of our time and for the future is how we manage the world’s water resources.
Water does not flow according to the boundaries created by nations, regions and communities. Moreover, water is a finite resource; what we have now is all we’ll ever have. And for the first time in history, global demand is beginning to outstrip supply.
This means that water is a resource that has to be shared. To do that requires cooperation. Cooperation can both prevent and solve problems.
