Spain: The Battle Over Water

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.

Solar Sister Solar Power Is Empowering Ugandan Women

Deutsche Welle (Mar. 4, 2013) — 95 percent of the population in Uganda has no electric power in their homes and relies on paraffin lamps for lighting. But not only is kerosene expensive, it's also a serious pollutant. Set up in 2010, the project Solar Sister has now provided almost 32,000 Ugandans with solar technology - and trained women as saleswomen. They're earning a living, helping their community and protecting the environment. In the course of ten years, a solar lamp saves over 600 liters of kerosene and that means CO2 savings of 1.5 tons. Solar Sister hopes to have helped save 10 million tons of CO2 over the next ten years.

Climate in Bolivia: Water for La Paz

Climate in Bolivia: Water for La Paz

Deutsche Welle (Nov. 11, 2012) — The metropolitan area of La Paz is expected to grow to 8 million people in the coming twenty years. Water from the mountains is already barely sufficient to supply the Bolivian capital during dry seasons. Because of climate change, rainy seasons can no longer be reliably calculated. To ensure an adequate long-term supply of clean water for the region, which lies at an altitude of 4000 meters above sea level, water management around the six Andean glaciers has to be adjusted to suit the climatic changes.

Ecology Versus Economic Use the Clean Water Quarrel

Ecology Versus Economic Use the Clean Water Quarrel

Deutsche Welle (Nov. 4, 2013) — Germany's Federal Environment Agency estimates that a quarter of all German groundwater contains excessive concentrations of nitrates - threatening some communities' water supply. The cause is over-fertilization of farmers' fields. Germany, Austria and Switzerland have been successfully joint-monitoring Lake Constance water quality for years. But authorities in Lower Saxony are only beginning to tackle the problem. Drinking water there often exceeds the EU norm of 50 milligrams of nitrates per liter.
