Abstract

Significant changes in water management are required to avoid the consequences of a “business as usual” approach, which will result in about half of the population of planet earth experiencing water stress within the next decade or so. Alternate approaches to water management are available, but they will require significant changes in how water is managed, both locally and globally.
