Achieving water, energy and food security for everyone is one of the greatest challenges humankind is facing today...
This video was commissioned by the Global Water System Project (GWSP) as an introduction to this pressing 21st century challenge. It was launched at the International Conference "Sustainability in the Water-Energy-Food Nexus", held in Bonn, Germany on May 19th and 20th 2014.

The video "Water in the Anthropocene", launched at the Opening Plenary of the GWSP Conference in Bonn, depicts the massive influence of humankind on the global water system of our Planet Earth.

Evidence is growing that our global footprint is now so significant we have driven Earth into a new geological epoch — the Anthropocene. Human activities such as damming and agriculture are changing the global water cycle in significant ways. 

The data visualisation was commissioned by the Global Water Systems Project for a major international conference (Water in the Anthropocene, Bonn, Germany, 21-24 May, 2013). Eva Flinkebusch and Anik Bhaduri (GWSP IPO) masterminded the script together with an international expert team.

As datasets build upon one another, the film charts Earth's changing global water cycle, why it is changing, and what this means for the future. The vertical spikes that appear in the film represent the 48,000 large dams that have been built.
