Dams and the world''s water. An educational book that explains how dams help to manage the world''s water
During the coming century, water will continue to be a vital resource for human civilization. An adequate and safe water supply is an essential component to our health, environment, communities and economy. But two major factors will increase the stakes: the incoming climate change, making the water resources more irregular, with drying trends necessitating more water storage; and the world population growth, increasing the demand for domestic, agricultural and industrial water with emphasis on irrigation for food production. Therefore, the crucial role adams played throughout human history will continue during the 21s century.
