About this product
- DescriptionInternational tensions around water are rising in many of the world's most volatile regions. The policy recipe pursued by the West, and imposed on governments elsewhere, is to pass control over water to private interests, which simply accelerates the cycle of inequality and deprivation. California, as well as China, South Africa, Mexico and countries on every continent already face a crisis. This book exposes the ermity of the problem, the dangers of the proposed solution and the alternative, which is to recognize access to water as a fundamental human right, t dependent on ability to pay.
