One thought on “Environmental Justice

  1. The UNESCO (2010) report states an agreement of the united nations on commiting to half the population of the world that’s in dire need of safe drinking water and sanitation. Seems an interresting goal (MDG). Why is this “article” only reffering to this goal and not elaborating more on the current status of this commitment and what not. I think it ads little to our insights on the subject, I’d like to see more literature on this subject. The link to prof. Gupta’s litterature list is uite handy, tho I’d make some of her papers on the subject compulsory for today. .
