The idea is attractive in these times where access to water is becoming essential for humanity. Why the Nile, the Bramapoutra, the Colorado and the Jordan? Because these four rivers are amongst the most critical for our civilisation. “What will happen to the Nile”, wonders Franck Vogel, “when those living along it need more water than the river can provide? How long will the Bramapoutra cope with the multiple dams that have been built along its length in China and in India? And how to save the Colorado, abused to the point that its waters don’t make it any more to its estuary in the Gulf of California? What about the Jordan, polluted and under pressure, all the while being a major strategic asset in the peace talks in the semi-arid Middle East?” The challenge is clear today! Just like it is for other rivers, like the Ganges, the Amazon, the Mekong or the Zambezi.
