Water Resources

The representation of water has changed over the course of history, it has throughout time been seen as a treasure, commodity, divine and recreational. 

As I contemplated what my next post should be about I realised how the concept of “Water resources” is changing with the development of technology and innovations.

I suppose the natural resources; springs, rivers, lakes, groundwater and oceans are constant but lately, even air is playing a role with the help of technology. What is changing is the management of these water resources. How we source the water, treat it, store it and supply it. But what I have learnt further during my Master’s study is how we interact with water shapes the definition of it as a resource. Water is not only to sustain life but also a tool to generate energy, income and employment. 

I started my studies with a limited perspective on water resources and now I am challenged to think out of the box and explore how far we can push the definition of water resources.
