The World's Water Website, brought to the WWW by the Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment and Security, posts up-to-date water information and data, with links to "organizations, institutions, and individuals working on a wide range of global freshwater problems and solutions." This site supplements the printed book The World's Water: The Biennial Report on Freshwater Resources,
by Peter H. Gleick (Island Press, Washington, D.C.), and includes tables, figures, and maps (see the January 19, 2000 Scout Report for Science & Engineering
). Data are posted online as they become available; current data are from the 1998-1999 edition, with 2000-2001 updates due in spring 2000. A mailing list and a comprehensive list of water-related links round out the site.
