Battle for Water

Battle for Water | Geography Education | Scoop.it

Many experts see water scarcity as a potential looming crisis.  Water scarcity, pollution and mismanagement are going to become increasingly important as the global population continues to rise farther above 7 billion.  AlertNet has put together a dynamic special feature on water with videos, infographics and interactive maps in addition to the following articles:

 

--Water scarcity – Conflicts of interests

--How much “virtual water” do you use every day?

--Water maps spark concern about "liquid gold rush"

--Myanmar in the dark over hydropower for Asia

--Thirsty South Asia's river rifts threaten "water wars"

--EXPERT VIEWS: New water policies are key to tackling scarcity

 

This is a must-see resource with multiple regional (South Asia, Middle East, Central Asia, Southeast Asia, etc.) applications and thematic (political, environmental, resource management, development, etc.) strands as well.
