    Water is increasingly recognized as a commodity in its own right, as evidenced by the launching in 2006 of the first water index, World Water Index or WOWAX. For a number of factors ranging from the growth of the world population to global warming and potential extinction of lakes and seas, water is increasingly receiving the attention it deserves. Expensive techniques of adduction or desalination are put into place in those regions in the world where it is scarce and in great demand.
