Water Security PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Water Security free pdf At the 2008 Davos Annual Meeting, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon identified water as "the" climate adaptation issue," directing the World Economic Forum to assemble the world's foremost group of public, private, non-governmental-organization and academic experts to examine the impending global water crisis from all perspectives. The result of their work is this forecast--a stark, non-technical overview of where we will be by 2025 if we continue to (mis)manage our water resources. "Water Security" contains compelling commentary from leading decision-makers, past and present. The commentary is supported by analysis from leading academics of how the world economy will be affected if world leaders cannot agree on solutions. The findings are shocking. Perhaps equally stunning are the potential solutions and the recommendations that the group presents. All are included in this landmark publication.
