Water Management

Water is essential to all life on earth. Without it, the planet would become lifeless. Our planet consists of about 3% freshwater and 97% saltwater. Of that freshwater component, the majority is locked up in icecaps and glaciers, with 22% left as groundwater and 1% in freshwater lakes, rivers and streams. With precious little fresh water and its importance to human life and the economy, understanding water management is critical.

This ​A-Level Water Managment module will enable students to:​

  • Identify areas of water surplus and water deficit
  • Explain the reasons for increasing water consumption
