    The global water crisis and the prospects for future water resources is forcing adjustments for how we measure the water that is used, how it is valued, and how (and to whom) it is allocated. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, first of a multi-part series, host Peter Neill will argue that what is required is a complete overhaul of the water inventory, including measurements for its use, in a new green economy.
