Clean Water for Developing Countries By John Dracup
John Dracup is a good friend of AKI and for over 50 years taught water resource engineering and hydrology at both the University of California, Los Angeles and the University of California, Berkeley. In his research, John has focused on the optimization of large-scale water resource systems and the impact of climate change on hydrologic variables. He has traveled the world, helping to bring clean water to people in disadvantaged communities. He's worked on clean water projects in Africa and Central and South America.
And now, John has written a new, important book: Clean Water for Developing Countries.
John says, "The majority of those impacted by unsafe water live in isolated rural areas of the developing world." Coincidentally, these are some of the same areas where AKI's supported animal welfare organizations work (and actually, I met John because of that overlap).
Of course, clean water is important for human beings, as well as the animals they rely on-donkeys, horses, cows, goats, sheep, chickens, cats, dogs--the animals that AKI supported organizations are helping. And that's why we think John's book is important for everyone interested in human and animal kind!
