Water and urbanization
Most of the world’s population growth over the next 25 years will happen in urban populations, particularly those of Africa and Asia. One of the most important issues this growth in urbanization must handle is the water issue. What can history teach us about urban expansion and water control?
The new book ‘A History of Water: Water and Urbanization’ co-edited by NAI researcher Terje Oestigaard looks into how the struggle and ability to utilize water supply sources have enabled urban expansion throughout history.
