Title of host publicationThe value of water in a drying climate
Subtitle of host publicationExtract: We have already pointed out that in 1987 the United Nations’ four year-long investigation of environmental and development matters, the Brundtland Report, came to its conclusions and put the concept of sustainable development on the agenda of governments worldwide. Five principles underpin the concept. Two are ethical constructs, rather than being science-based. The first, and best known, is the principle of intergenerational equity.
