ISSUE: Water

Will the wars of the 21st century be fought over water? The health of the human race and the global eco-system largely depends on access to clean water and sanitation. Yet, according to the United Nations Development Program, over 1 billion people worldwide lack access to clean water, and 2.4 billion lack access to basic sanitation. This disproportion of critical resources heavily impacts poverty and economic and social development, jeopardizing political stability in water-deficient countries.
