Water

Water is the elixir of life. But if the cycle of condensation and precipitation falls out of sync, rivers dry up – or they flood their banks. Our dossier guides the reader from the glaciers of the world's highest mountain ranges in Pakistan to the underground sewers of the Albanian city of Korça. It features people who have learned to live with flooding – and people who only think of their river as one thing: a transport route.
