Where Will the Water of the Future Come From?
Water is already a crisis for billions globally who lack access to clean drinking water or adequate sanitation. And with the effects of climate change on freshwater supplies and increasing demand for food and energy from a human population slated to grow to more than 9 billion over the next 40 years, water resources will be stressed to almost unimaginable levels. Where will the solutions come from--and can we implement them without destroying biodiversity? Experts on water and climate, cities,
corporations, food security and ecosystems discuss the most promising paths forward.
