With human activities such as agricultural run-off, pollution and invasive species threatening rivers that serve 80 per cent of the world's population, a new research paper providing a global analysis of threats to fresh water could help identify areas most at risk of water failure in the future.
The research paper, which featured this month as the cover story of major international science magazine 'Nature', is the first global-scale initiative to simultaneously quantify the impact of human-induced stressors on water security and aquatic biodiversity.
The research provides a framework for diagnosing the primary threats to water security on both a local and global level, which it is hoped could be the first step towards securing future water resources for both humans and other species.
