Wetlands: the best sustainability indicators

They have been our partners in evolution, and now they are under threat.

In recent months, people in large areas of the northern hemisphere's wetlands have experienced unprecedented water shortages since records exist. Extraordinary measures have been taken, while millions have experienced water stress for the first time. May their astonishment serve to fight global warming.
