Theology, Ethics, and the Global Water Crisis

By Christiana Z. Peppard

A gripping analysis of the value of fresh water at the intersection of hydrology, ecology, ethics, theology, and Catholic social thought.

Do we truly understand the significance of fresh water in an era of economic globalization?  Aimed at the educated non-specialist as well as scholars, Just Water explores important aspects of the global fresh water crisis while also providing ethical analysis and principled recommendations about fresh water use and scarcity in the twenty-first century. 

Ultimately, Just Water invites us to expand global discourse about the value of fresh--unique, non-substitutable substance that serves as a baseline for human existence.  At the same time offering tools for understanding and appreciating contemporary ethical problems posed by looming fresh water scarcity in the twenty first century.
