Who can leave more than 2.2 billion people on earth without drinking water? How did we get here? Why do we have so many difficulties in meeting the water needs that are essential to life? What can we do about it?
"Saving Water" is the result of more than 35 years of professional practice in the field of water engineering. After 20 years of teaching at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), the author has been able to synthesise the multiple links between an international economy focused on short-term profitability and the day-to-day reality of a section of the world's population that is increasingly thirsty, to the point of death! This book explains the many undesirable effects on water and gives clues to save lives.
He has a PHD in engineering from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne (EPFL) and a long and rich career as a practising engineer in hydraulic issues. He currently runs a company he founded in 2015 His aim is to transfer knowledge and promote a world which is more in balance with its environment.
In this book, he takes a frank and constructive look at the global water issue, which has been wreaking humanitarian havoc for far too long, far more than the current pandemic of COVID-19.
