Thorén, Cecilia E., 2009. Hållbar vattenplanering : en diskussion med utgångspunkt ur fyra bristområden. First cycle, G2E. Alnarp: SLU, Landscape Architecture (until 121231)



Billions of children, women and men lack access to safe water supplies, which
puts the affected in both social as well as economic despair. This paper will
present some of the conclusions leading Non Governmental Organisations such
as the UN has presented recently concerning the terms of sustainability. Much of
it is true and important, but nothing can be done without extended cooperation
between nations worldwide to find arguments that prevent short-term thinking
and economic wealth on the behalf of future sustainability.
With a growing population and an increased competition for fresh water, the
world will soon face a severe shortage of good quality water for irrigation. This is
because the distributions rarely match the demand, neither in Australia nor in
Africa. Important to notice is the major factor that the degradation of the
environment is not one country’s problem to solve. The problem is among us,
grasping our whole society since the globalization and free trade has united the
world. Scarcity of water supplies is a large issue around the world, and a necessity
to focus on even in Sweden. It is a future planning problem that we will meet
during our work on the field and an issue needed to be discussed. This essay tries
to focus on how the current problems of water scarcity are being discussed in
different parts of the world and how we plan for a sustainable future around water
supplies. This paper highlights some of the solutions planners and co-workers are
developing to make the affected participate in their own future planning. It
compares three developing countries in north and east Africa, all lacking access to
clean water, with a developed country and its’ water and irrigation problem.
