Water is our most precious resource; without it, nothing can survive. Climate, overpopulation and mismanagement are causing both the quantity and quality of water to change. The Water Apocalypse looks at the resource itself – how much there is, how much is available for human use, where it is, and some of its unique properties, for water is like no other substance.
In 1990, more than a billion people did not have enough water to meet their basic needs, and that number is only expected to climb. Award-winning author and journalist Marq de Villiers hosts this important series.
