Ecosystem Under Threat Inle Lake in Myanmar

Deutsche Welle (Aug. 5, 2013) — Inle Lake is the second-largest freshwater lake in Myanmar and home to the Inthe people. But the lake's ecosystem is now under threat through overfishing, deforestation, pollution and silting. Climate change is also having an impact. In 2010, extremely low water levels in the lake cut off access to the Hpaung Daw U Pagoda. That served as a wake-up call for local residents. The United Nations now supports a program promoting sustainable fishing, organic farming and raising awareness of conservation issues. Part of the initiative has been the introduction of a no-fish zone in the lake.

Spain: The Battle Over Water

Deutsche Welle (Aug. 21, 2013) — As a result of the economic crisis, many municipalities in Spain have sold their public water utilities to private companies. Now some local communities are finding out that the water supply networks are no longer being maintained properly and that water quality is on the decline. By the end of the year, about 60 percent of water utility management will be partly or entirely in private hands, making Spain the frontrunner in water privatization within Europe. Some experts are already calling it a "water bubble, and communities that are still trying to sell their water utilities are no longer able to obtain top prices. Now some communities are trying to regain public control over their water supply.
