About this product
- DescriptionWater has been described as 'the oil of the 21st century' with rapid population growth, climate change and pollution conspiring to make it the resource over which wars may be fought in years to come. But does water have a price? Is it a right or a need? Increasingly, water is viewed as a commodity whose function is to generate profits. In this book, Larbi Bouguerra argues that instead we should view it as a common good of humanity. Water has an exceptional cross-cultural symbolic value and its use raises ermous questions about our lifestyle, our ethics and our relationship to nature. Bouguerra makes a powerful case for a society that is more ecomical with water and manages it openly and democratically, as a global resource.
- Author BiographyMohamed Larbi Bouguerra works at the Alliance for a Responsible, Plural and United World, where he is in charge of the Water Programme. He was previously Professor of Science at Tunis University, and Associate Director of Research at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS).
