Policymakers and development planners have been curiously struck
with "water blindness" in the face of a quadrupling of water use
throughout the world during the last five decades. Without
resorting to doom-and-gloom scenarios, Robin Clarke offers the
first comprehensive approach to this most valuable and fragile of
Earth's life-supporting substances.Clarke describes the economics
and the politics that have led to today's freshwater shortage and
observes that inappropriate water resources development is a major
factor in the degradation of land and water. His insightful
analyses include new ideas as well as simple and well-tried
solutions that can be extended to ensure future water
security.Robin Clarke is the author of numerous environmental
books, and consultant to the publishing program of the Global
Environment Monitoring Systems of the United Nations Environment
Program (GEMS, UNEP).
