About this book

Do we truly understand the significance of fresh water in an era of economic globalisation? Aimed at the educated non-specialist as well as scholars, Just Water explores important aspects of the global fresh water crisis while also providing ethical analysis and principled recommendations about fresh water use and scarcity in the 21st century. Ultimately, Just Water invites us to expand global discourse about the value of fresh water – unique, non-substitutable substance that serves as a baseline for human existence. At the same time Just Water offers tools for understating and appreciating contemporary ethical problems posed by looming fresh water scarcity in the 21st century.
