DAVID SEDLAK: WATER FOR ALL
This episode of Big Blend Radio’s “Nature Connection” Show features professor and award-winning author David Sedlak, who discusses his new book, “Water for All: Global Solutions for a Changing Climate.” Watch here in the YouTube player.

As we see in news headlines and in our own neighborhoods: water crises are more frequent and increasingly severe. Our twentieth-century approach to providing the water that grows food, sustains cities, and supports healthy ecosystems are failing to meet the demands of growing population and the challenges brought on by climate change. But the grim news reports—of empty reservoirs, withering crops, failing ecosystems—need not be cause for despair, argues award-winning author David Sedlak.

In “Water for All: Global Solutions for a Changing Climate,” David Sedlak identifies the challenges that society faces, including ineffective policies and outdated infrastructure, and the myriad of tools at our disposal—from emerging technologies in desalination to innovations for recycling wastewater and capturing more of the water that falls on fields and cities. He offers an informed and hopeful approach for changing the way that water is managed. With this knowledge we can create a future with clean, abundant, and affordable water for all.

David Sedlak is the Plato Malozemoff Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, and director of the Berkeley Water Center. He is author of the award-winning “Water 4.0: The Past, Present, and Future of the World’s Most Vital Resource.” His TEDx talk on this subject has had over a million views. He lives in Berkeley, CA.
