Abstract

Key Messages: (1) Human activities and processes of all types -- demographic, economic and social -- can exert pressures on water resources and need to be managed. (2) These pressures are in turn affected by a range of factors such as technological innovation, institutional and financial conditions and climate change. (3) The rapid global rise in living standards combined with population growth presents the major threat to the sustainability of water resources and environmental services.
