Rich countries, Poor water

Posted on August, 16 2006

A new WWF report showing that a combination of climate change, drought and loss of wetlands, along with poorly thought out water infrastructure and resource mismanagement in developed countries, is contributing to the world's water crisis.
The WWF report Rich countries, poor water is one of the first comprehensive overviews of water issues in the developed world.

The report shows that a combination of climate change and drought and loss of wetlands that store water, along with poorly thought out water infrastructure and resource mismanagement, is making this crisis truly global. The report highlights impacts of water problems in countries such as Australia, Spain, Japan, and the UK, and the US.
