Summary This project reveals and documents the increasingly common privatization of public drinking water systems worldwide and examines the impact of this new form of globalization. Three private water utilities companies, all based in France, dominate the worldwide market. This project raises concerns that a few companies could soon control a large chunk of the world's most vital resource. 31 researchers, writers and editors were involved in this twelve month investigation.
