Water - Contribution to Sustainable Supply and Use

Ancient Greek philosophers already considered water as a precondition of life. Throughout the ages and in all cultures water was allocated a divine character. Meanwhile the subjects “water pollution” and “water scarcity” are regularly present in the media and governmental and non-governmental institutions urgently point out the growing threats for water quantity and quality. The present issue of the series “Landscape and Sustainable Development” concentrates on water use for rural areas and tries to contribute to a more sustainable use and reflection of this vital resource.
