WATER, one of our most critical resources, is under threat. The importance of water to life means that providing for water needs and demands will never be free of politics.
The website under review is an effort initiated by American non-profit Pacific Institute to understand the connections between water resources, water systems and international security and conflicts.
It offers a chronology of water conflicts worldwide since 3000 BC and how they have impacted human history. The portal provides latest data on water resources and an analysis of significant events, which can help policymakers, activists and responsible citizens protect and preserve freshwater around the globe.
As a helping tool, the site has essential references and resources, from international water laws to water initiatives worldwide.
