GREEN is a part of a ground-breaking new series, the National Geographic Learning Reader Series. This series brings learning to life by featuring compelling images, media and text from National Geographic. Through this engaging content, students develop a clearer understanding of the world around them. Published in a variety of subject areas, the National Geographic Learning Reader Series connects key topics to authentic examples and can be used in conjunction with most standard texts or online materials available for your courses. Access to a media-enhanced eBook is included with each reader. The twelve articles in this single-themed reader are inspired by our changing relationship with the earth, based on an understanding that the planet's resources are finite and that our future depends on preserving them. While the term green signifies a level of awareness about environmental concerns, it is used here in the broadest sense, to draw students' attention to the state of the planet and to promote discourse on how to address the needs of the human population as well as the ecosystems that sustain life in our world. To what extent we see ourselves as members of a global community and to rethink how we will meet the growing needs of our population in the future are the two central questions this collection asks readers to consider critically.

Bring your learning to life with compelling images, media and text from National Geographic. Global Challenges and Policy of Freshwater Use will help you develop a clearer understanding of the world around you through engaging content. Organized into three units - historical context, current challenges, and potential solutions - Global Challenges and Policy of Freshwater Use introduces students to many of the real world challenges that both individuals and governments face in deciding how we should manage global freshwater resources. The selected articles pull from current events throughout the world to illustrate a variety of freshwater policy problems, including examples of the effects of changing climates on precipitation patterns, how growing populations and competing industry interests are having to adapt in a world with these changing patterns, and the controversy over what inherent and legal rights nature and wildlife should have in our water policy decisions. Selected readings also confront issues associated with the consequences of large-scale water pollution and aquifer depletion, restoration potentials and dam removal, freshwater production and distribution technologies, and international relations that are significantly influenced by water usage and rights. Collectively, these articles create a reader that is designed to help students from a wide variety of disciplines get a more thorough appreciation for the challenges involved in global freshwater policy.
