GLOBAL WATER OUTLOOK TO 2025 - AVERTING AN IMPENDING CRISIS

(International Food Policy Research Institute and International Water Management Institute, 2002) This report indicates that if current water trends persist, a water crisis could occur, leading to a breakdown in domestic water service for hundreds of millions of people – most significantly in the developing world. Devastating loss of wetlands, reductions in food production and skyrocketing food prices are also expected to occur. The report suggest three broad strategies: investment in infrastructure to increase the supply of water for irrigation, domestic and industrial purposes; conservation of water and improved efficiency of water use in existing systems through water management and policy reform; and improvement of crop productivity per unit of water and land.

THE EU-ANGOLA FISHERIES AGREEMENT AND FISHERIES IN ANGOLA

This briefing report by Kees Lankester (World Wildlife Fund for Nature, September 2002) highlights the controversy behind the European Union's policy to buy fishing rights from developing countries such as Angola. The report outlines the recent renewal of the EU-Angola fisheries agreement and presents information on fisheries and fisheries management in Angola. Based on several observations, Lankester concludes that the new Agreement is not based on good governance, does not apply the precautionary approach, is not scientifically based, and does not have provisions for the impact of the agreement on socio-economic and environment conditions.
