Abstract

This essay is born out of reflection on three recent publications that address the global water crisis currently facing humanity, a scarcity arising from overuse and pollution that threaten the ecosystems, health and livelihoods of billions, particularly of the world's poor and vulnerable. Climate change is an additional factor, with unpredictable and more extreme weather patterns threatening an already dire situation, affecting the amount of water that will be available in future.
