Out now: Stockholm WaterFront no 2, 2019
Everybody needs water and therefore everybody should have a say in decisions about water. In theory, it’s as simple as that. In real life, however, we know that access to clean water is distributed very unequally, that the poor tend to be hardest hit by disasters and that marginalized groups seldom can influence important water decisions.
We also know that the gaps between the rich and the poor are likely to grow in coming years, exacerbated by the climate crisis, degraded ecosystems and increasingly extreme and unpredictable weather patterns.
