    Also available are an overview of Programme Element 1 and a summary of all elements of the UNEP Programme.
    Issues addressed:
    An estimated one-third of the world's population will suffer from chronic water shortage by the year 2025 due to increasing demand for drinking water caused by growing population, decreasing quality of the water resulting from pollution, and augmenting requirements of expanding industries and agriculture. The shortage will be particularly felt by people in arid areas and by rapidly growing coastal populations and megacities. The increasing water scarcity, combined with its deteriorating quality, will have far reaching global impacts on human health, socio-economic development potential of affected countries, freshwater and marine resources, and biodiversity, and may cause international conflicts over water rights. Pollution of freshwater is escalating throughout the world, affecting in many places the quality of drinking water and the integrity of freshwater and coastal marine ecosystems. The freshwater hydrological cycles are inseparably linked with marine systems and the problems besetting river basins have profound impact on coastal and marine environment.

Split, Priority Actions Programme, 2000. Probably for the first time ever, a regional development and planning study links integrated coastal zone management issues with similar approaches covering the relevant hinterland. Starting from the Cetina river mouth on the Adriatic Sea, a particular ecosystem of the adjacent coastal area, that includes significant marine channels and an important archipelago, the study also covers the e reviewed by Tobias Salathé, Ramsar Regional Coordinator for Europe Reprint of the book's Foreword Coastal areas have been recognised as most valuable areas in many countries. Apart from being environmentally sensitive and highly productive, the coastal areas are also attractive for human population and, therefore, for economic development. Sixty percent of the world's population lives within 60 km of the coastlines, and this figure is forecasted to rise to 75% within the next three decades. In order to address a complex natural system and interactions between human activities and natural environment, during 1990s, the need for an integrated approach to coastal area management was recognised. Only in this manner, environmental, social, economic, institutional, financial, legislative and other elements could be identified and incorporated into sustainable development.

    Australia's Coastal Environment
    Almost 90 per cent of Australians and most of our industries are in towns and cities along the coastal fringes of the continent. The narrow strip between the hinterland and the ocean is a popular recreational area, a valuable source of food and a transport route, but it has also historically been a dump for Australia's liquid and solid waste. Today, there's a need to find a balance between these conflicting uses of the coastal strip. Local councils are under pressure to modernise their wastewater treatment, and industrial plants and factories to upgrade their methods of disposal. Australians have become aware of the damage they are doing to fragile marine ecosystems. In response, CSIRO instituted the Coastal Zone Program, which draws on the expertise of scientists from across the organisation. Its aim is to equip managers and users of coastal areas with tools and techniques for making decisions based on the most recent scientific findings. Among the such techniques are the application of biomarkers to trace the source of faecal and oil pollution.

The Environment Agency has an important role in warning people about the risk of flooding and in reducing the likelihood of flooding from rivers and the sea. It is estimated that reports of flooding are now on average nearly twice as frequent as they were one hundred years ago. Recently, the media have started to make the public more aware of flooding, with flood warnings becoming a regular part of the nightly weather forecast. This awareness is currently being increased with flood warnings being posted on the internet as well as the ability to find out whether you live in a flooding 'at-risk' area. The environment agency produces a series of maps known as Indicative Floodplain Maps These maps show the natural river and coastal floodplains in England and Wales. A floodplain is the area which is expected to be affected when either a river floods, or high tides or stormy seas cause flooding of low-lying coastal areas. River floodplains are coloured blue and coastal floodplains are coloured green. If your area is coloured blue or green on the map, then your property is at risk, although the risk may not necessarily be high. The floodplain boundaries have been drawn to include all the areas known to face at least a one in one hundred (or a 1%) chance of flooding in any one year. The green coastal floodplains show areas facing a one in two hundred (or a 0.5%) chance of flooding in any one year.

Related Resources Introduction Comparison History Rivers Index It is the longest and largest river in North America, flowing 3,705 kilometers from its source at Lake Itasca in the Minnesota North Woods, through the midcontinental United States, the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Plain, and its subtropical Louisiana Delta. "Mississippi" is an Ojibwa (Chippewa) Indian word meaning great river or gathering of watersan appropriate name because the river basin, or watershed, extends from the Allegheny Mountains in the eastern United States to the Rocky Mountains, including all or parts of 31 states (Fig. 1) and 2 Canadian provinces. The river basin measures 4.76 million square kilometers, covering about 40% of the United States and about one-eighth of North America. Of the world's rivers, the Mississippi ranks third in length, second in watershed area, and fifth in average discharge.

    Mississippi Delta
    The Mississippi delta region—with big population centers such as New Orleans—represents one of the most vulnerable regions of the Gulf Coast. The combined effects of engineered and altered landscapes, natural subsidence, and climate change will have tremendous consequences for human well-being, natural resources, and biodiversity. Over the past century, the nearly 1.3 million square mile watershed of the Mississippi River has experienced major environmental changes, including conversion of more than 80 percent of forested wetlands to agriculture and urban areas, channelization, dam construction, and river levees. The construction of massive structures that keep the river from switching channels has restricted sediment and freshwater supply to the flood plain. Losing Wetlands
    These changes have been especially damaging to the region's wetlands. The coastal wetlands associated with the Mississippi River delta make up nearly 40 percent of the total coastal salt marsh in the lower 48 states of the U.S. These wetlands are disappearing at an average rate of 25 square miles per year, about 50 acres each day. Already, more than one thousand square miles of freshwater wetlands in Louisiana have been lost or converted to other habitats. Only about 20 percent of the original bottomland hardwood forests and swamps in the lower Mississippi River valley remain today.

    3rd March, 2003 China's major river re-routing plan. PLUS - Rainforest facts? China is planning its biggest engineering project since the Three Gorges Dam and the Great Wall of China, reported Associated Press. So, China is going to launch a plan to reroute the major rivers that saturate the south to supply water to the north. Three Gorges Dam "China is a huge country. It needs a project like this for the long term," said Zhang Guoliang of the Ministry of Water Resources. "No matter what happens, it is going to need more water." The planned rerouting of the rivers is the largest project of its type in the world. It was first proposed as an idea in 1952 but work did not begin until December 27, 2002, after official approval. An estimated 50 million people in northeastern China will benefit directly from 2007, when the first phase is due to be completed, but work on the rest of the plan will continue until well after 2025, said officials.
