“Forget water wars: think about water peace.” - David Lloyd Owen
The Sound of Thirst: Why urban water for all is essential, achievable and affordable, by David Lloyd Owen, published by Parthian Books in June 2012.

Dr David Lloyd Owen has written many academic books on water – but The Sound of Thirst is, as he puts it himself, “written for anybody concerned”. However, he believes that even “soft books” need some statistics. He drops in those statistics with ease to relay some uncomfortable truths about our attitudes to water and sewerage services.
