Flashback: 18--24 Jun

A year later and still worth a read...

WaterHealth International -- a profile of a company that delivers "kiosk water" to customers who are willing to pay for safe water rather than wait for "free" water that is unreliable and unsafe.

Saving ocean fisheries -- it's not just reforming (and reinforcing) property rights, it's about helping small fishermen survive policies that big fishermen get to help themselves. (On a related note, I heard recently that the EU buys fishing permits from African nations at 3-4x the value of fish caught, to keep EU fishermen employed. African fishermen are, of course, screwed, since that money does not go to them.)

Some for free, pay for more -- how South Africa's "right to water" works...
