Water - A Youth Perspective

Each year UNDP's flagship Human Development Report takes a hard hitting look at a major issue effecting human development. This past year the report looked at the many challenges associated with water - from access to clean water to its use in farming to dealing with water sources that cross multiple states.

UNDP and Peace Child Int'l have just come out with Water Rights and Wrongs. This short report gives kids from around the world the opportunity to share their perspectives - with photos, poems, and stories - on the issues in the report. It's only 32 pages (with lots of photos) but I highly recommend it.
