#WorldWaterDay 2013 and engineering solutions to water shortage – an annotated graphic

2013 has been declared the international year of water cooperation, as a burgeoning global human population continues to absorb every available drop of fresh water on the planet. Everyone needs it, but not everyone has it. Therein lies the rub.

Water shortage is also one of the Global Grand Challenges, as featured in a recent issue of E&T. The good news is that engineers and technologists now have some effective answers to the questions posed by water shortages.

Friday 21 March 2013 is World Water Day. Whatever it means to you, try using a little less water for one day at least.
