How sad that those with foresight have to wait for 40 years for those needing 20-20 hindsight to catch up. I was teaching in Malta (VSO) 1968 - 1970 and as the economy was changing to tourism highlighted the need to introduce the infrastructure strategies needed to accommodate that change, but because it wasn't in the text books nobody wanted to know. heyho If we ignore history we are doomed to repeat it. I am now in Manila faced with the same scenario where the city is said to be water stressed with "Water out" by 2020 is anyone in the past 5 years taken any serious action ??? Am still selling the same ideas, non revolutionary or technical challenging, just a little political will and enforcement.
