12 There is a powerful, and currently quite effective, cabal of academics, governments and other institutions which seek to irrevocably “privatise” water utilising arguments from so-called “free market environmentalism” (cf. Lomborg 1998; Segerfeldt, 2005; Snyder and Anderson, 1999). Such mechanisms are also used to regulate and manage the pollution of water resources, but not in any direct sense. Economic means include a system of charges for discharging pollution into the environment, including water, and fines for excessive concentrations or loads of discharged pollutants.

And in 2000 the EU’s “Water Framework Directive” prescribed integrated catchment management as the model for all 27 EU member countries (we discuss the WFD in greater detail in Chapter 3). Introduction 21 Of course it can be argued that some countries’ citizens are more efficient with their water use, others more profligate. Whilst the average American uses 400 litres/ day, the average Briton uses 140-150 litres/day and both seem exorbitant water users compared to the average Indian who uses only 40 litres/day.

Whether these constitute, or come to constitute, a system of hydro-governance rooted at the global scale remains to be seen. Yet, given the persistence of water shortage around the world and indeed its intensification by both climate change and the political economy of “virtual water” exports from already dry countries, there is clearly a prima facie need for a global response. I would go further, arguing there is an increasingly desperate need to colonise Varady’s emergent “aperture” with a new “ontology” founded on ineluctable human and social rights to water.
