Out of Water free pdf The Indispensable Guide to the Next Global Crisis: Water "No water, no life. Are you wondering how this planet can be 'running out of water' when it still rains and rivers flow? This book is your guide. Colin Chartres has lived his life to improve the management of the water that gives life to all. His lessons are worth learning." --Margaret Catley-Carlson, Member of the UN Secretary General's Advisory Board, Chair of the Global Water Partnership, and former Deputy Executive Director of UNICEF "Chartres and Varma ably combine sound science and intelligent writing to illuminate the enormous technical and managerial challenges inherent in meeting the world's rapidly growing water needs. Wisely, Out of Waterpays special attention to the complexities of managing water for agriculture, by far the largest consumer of water worldwide and the major contributor to water scarcity." --Roberto Lenton, Chair, Inspection Panel, The World Bank "Ensuring that we use water more wisely, more productively, and less profligately will be one of the defining challenges...of this century. There are solutions, and while implementing these will not be easy, they are achievable, as pointed out in this book." --From the Foreword by Dr. Joachim von Braun, Director, Center for Development Research (ZEF)
