'Water facts and figures are essential, but to understand why we are in crisis today, it is imperative to go beyond statistical data into both the water management perspective and the analysis of community-level experience. This important study looks at all these levels-and more' MARGARET CATLEY-CARLSON, Chair, Global Water Partnership 'World Water Actions provides a review of over 3,000 initiatives in every field of water management and affecting all stakeholders. It clearly demonstrates that the World Water Movement envisioned by the World Water Commission is well underway' ISMAIL SERAGELDIN, Chairman, World Commission for Water in the 21st Century 'World Water Actions presents applied and concrete answers to many of the issues identified by the United Nations through its World Water Assessment Programme, and therefore inspires us all as water practitioners' ANDR?S SZOLLOSI-NAGY, Deputy Assistant Director-General, Natural Sciences, and Secretary, International Hydrological Programme, UNESCO
