Vital Water Graphics

Vital Water GraphicsThis report, which is the 2008 updated version of the one published in 2002, has also greatly benefited from inputs and research provided by the international French language newspaper "Le Monde diplomatique". Its goal is to produce a clear overview, through a set of graphics, maps and other illustrations, of the current state of the world’s fresh, coastal and marine waters. It also illustrates the causes and effects of trends that threaten our water resources, with examples of areas of major concern and future scenarios for the use and management of fresh, coastal and marine waters.
