In A Journey in the Future of Water leading water expert, TerjeTvedt, travels to 25 countries and all continents to find out more about the ways in which different nations are seeking to respond. From Project Moses, where gigantic underwater gates will rise to prevent the inundation of Venice, to India's River Link Plan, connecting 37 Himalayan rivers to major rivers in the south, the author examines the world's largest engineering projects, travels the great river valleys, visits "the largest ocean under the Earth," and major cities of the world, to explore water's determining role in the life of the planet. The most comprehensive and accessible account of global water issues to date.
