The non-profit organization No Water No Life (NWNL) combines the powers of photography, scientific research and stakeholder knowledge to raise awareness of the vital importance of fresh water resources, perils of watershed degradation and opportunities for sustainable resource management. NWNL has chosen six case-study watersheds to illustrate current universal threats to freshwater systems. They are North America’s Columbia, Mississippi and Raritan River Basins and Northeastern Africa’s Nile, Omo and Mara River Basins.
