Water scarcity is becoming a global problem. Freshwater — the stuff we drink, bathe in, and irrigate our farm fields with — is incredibly rare. Only 3 percent of the world’s water is fresh water, and two-thirds of that is tucked away in frozen glaciers or otherwise unavailable for use. As a result, over 1 billion people worldwide lack access to water, and a total of 2.7 billion find water scarce for at least one month of the year.
With many of the water systems that keep ecosystems thriving and feed the global population having become overstressed, alternative solutions are urgently needed. In this video, Andrew Brown describes some of the simple strategies that he and his neighbors are using in Tuscon, Arizona, to tackle this problem.
