Groundwater under Threat

The more the earth's population grows, the greater is the pressure on water resources. In many areas, surface water of sufficiently good quality for use as drinking water is no longer available in sufficient quantities. In these places, people are increasingly dependent on groundwater. But what happens when groundwater is also threatened by contamination and scarcity?

The Research Council Formas also has published these books about water: Water research – what´s next? (2004), Dams under debate (2006) and Water for food (2008).
