Using water


History shows a strong link between economic development and water resources development. There are abundant examples of how water has contributed to economic development and how development has demanded increased harnessing of water. Steadily rising demand for agricultural products to satisfy the diverse needs of growing populations (for food, fiber and now fuel) has been the main driver behind agricultural water use.  The effects of water-depleting and water polluting activities on human and ecosystem health remains largely unreported or difficult to measure, and the need grows stronger for effective protection of ecosystems and the goods and services they produce – on which life and livelihoods depend. As competition among demands on water increases, society will need to respond with improved water management, more effective policies and transparent and efficient water allocation mechanisms.
