Title

Dividing the waters: Food security, ecosystem health and the new politics of scarcity

Author

Postel, Sandra

Description

Although water is renewable, it is also finite. The amount of fresh water that can sustainably be supplied to farmers is reaching its limits. Numerous rivers, lakes, and wetlands -- along with the life they support -- are declining in health. But there is no enforceable law governing the allocation and use of international waters.
