War of Thirst
In Uganda the Austrian Development Cooperation Program of the Vienna School of Agriculture supports water resourcing. In Israel there has not been sufficient rain for years. According to information supplied by fishermen, the Sea of Galilee recedes about a centimeter every day. Israel is considering importing water from Turkey. In a global manifesto, Riccardo Petrella, a social scientist for the EU in Brussels, has demanded "water for all". Just imagine that suddenly we would not be able to give our dogs water anymore", said Petrella. "Everybody would let out a cry. But the fact that one and a half billion people have no access to clean water is not thought of as a scandal."
