Paths to Peace

By Hang Nguyen* and Jamal Qaiser**

The speed at which peace is rapidly slipping away from today's world is of great concern to any sensible and aware person. People who consider themselves educated and civilised are reverting to the time when personal egoism and false pride led people to go for each other's throats, and on a communal basis led tribes and dynasties to indulge in barbaric acts.

However, water consumption is a particular challenge for exploration. But not only environmental damage is in focus, but also human lives, as painfully learned in recent years, especially in Brazil.
