The water that exists now – and has existed for all of earth’s time – is all there is. We cannot make new water; it is not a renewable resource. It will have to be our ingenuity and ability to adapt that will rescue humanity from a world water crisis that is gaining momentum.
Watering the Future looks at the efforts that governments and ordinary people are making to solve the problems of water – from the innovative to the bizarre, from the simple to the complex, from the tiny to the truly massive. Award-winning author and journalist Marq de Villiers hosts this important series.
