Book Description:
Water is the most vital element among the natural resources, and is crucial for the survival of all living organisms. Water drove the development of human civilization from the earliest agricultural communities to the greatest metropolitan centers. Surface water and groundwater are both important sources not only for human use but also for ecological systems. Although water is one of our basic resources, it is often in short supply. This new and important book discusses the environmental, economic and social impacts of water shortages around the globe.
