Water Supply in the Niger Delta of Nigeria : From Public Protests to Scientific Discourse Hardback
The World Bank predicts that two-thirds of the world's population will not have enough fresh drinking water by the year 2025.
Instead of protecting existing supplies, promoting conservation or helping vulnerable populations, many governments are turning to private companies, often large transnational corporations, to fix their water woes.
There is growing concern among communities, therefore, that as water resources move from being a public good to the hands of private interests, more poor people will be left to go thirsty.
This book discusses the issues facing the water supply in the Niger Delta of Nigeria in order to highlight the immediate collective need to intervention.
