World Water Supply Under Stress
(2007-09-20)
(wfcr) - Water is the essential ingredient in sustaining life. Many in the developed world take it for granted that drinkable water comes out of the the tap, but the world's supply of clean water is under threat with dire consequences for our future, according to Margaret Catley-Carlson. She's a former Assistant Secretary-General of the U-N and the Chair of the Global Water Partnership, a resource management organization formed in part by the World Bank, and the U-N. Catley-Carlson will be at Smith College tonight. She told WFCR's Kari Njiiri the increasing demand for water has 1/3 of the world's population already living under what she calls water stress. © Copyright 2017, wfcr
