This learning pathway explores the problem of water scarcity and different ways of managing water by examining case studies from around the world. The case studies look at the issues of water supply and water management from different perspectives. Bottled water seems like a straightforward solution to the problem, but the environmental impact of moving and managing the bottles is complex. Case studies also look at how people in urban and rural Ethiopia battle to survive as they share limited amounts of water, and how agencies in Tanzania are using drama in schools to raise awareness in children of the link between clean water and health.
Water is vital for personal survival. Without it we’d soon die and many industries, and all food production, would fail. But access to water resources also affects development, social relations, economics and politics. Understanding the importance of a safe and stable water supply creates an appreciation of the ramifications of polluted water, and what that means from an economic and political perspective.
