Water is vital. Access to clean, safe, affordable water is a basic human right. Or is it? Some estimate that one billion people lack access to safe water. Moreover, some have estimated that within just ten years more than half of the world population will face water-based vulnerability. What are the costs to us as individuals, and to a society as a whole, when we decide that providing clean water to ourselves and others is not a social priority? What problems have such decisions created for our children, and their children and to the environment as a whole? What is the best explanation of the factors that result in a community finding itself with a water crisis? What are the most effective responses to such a crisis? What policies and educational programs are maximally effective to ensure that proper water management is given the emphasis that it requires? Papers addressing the medical, social, political, legal policy-making significance of water management are welcome.
