Water and lives: images, not words

13 March 2009 | Video

IUCN's presence at the World Water Forum starting in Istanbul next Monday will be a loud one. The world's largest environmental union will launch its latest reports on sharing water resources, reforming water governance, and a study on freshwater species in South Africa.  

From water scarcity in the Middle East to water management in Southeast Asia, the Union's 60 offices around the world work with local people, governments and NGOs to help avoid a future water crisis.
