My colleague, Juan Carlos Bravo, wrote a post recently about the problem of water scarcity in mining. It's a nice take on what is happening to miners in Latin America and other arid regions. Soon after, I read a series titled "A world without water" in the Financial Times and just yesterday I found an article about the possibility of water being traded as a commodity to avoid a global water crisis.(http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/commodities/10979107/Commodities-Water-should-be-traded-on-financial-markets-to-avoid-global-crisis.html)
What are you experiencing in your industry? Are you developing contingency plans for water security?
