What is Kobo Super Points?
Control of water flows was central to the settlement of humanity, forming not only the foundation of our first civilisation but substantially shaping subsequent cultural and economic evolution. As a finite resource, fresh water and its management will inevitably also define much of our future relationships and potential. Water is life. It is also power, opportunity, influence and status, particularly for those controlling it in arid and water-stressed lands.
Access to and management of water is therefore inescapably political. And of course all politics are personal, never more so than for those with insufficient water to enable their families to drink, cook and wash and whose crops are withering in the field.
