There is water on Earth. However, as P. Barthelemy  points out, "The Earth is actually brown, dyed blue." He indicates that despite the planet's blue colour, easily accessible fresh water is very scarce. That's why it's so important to save, preserve and evaluate the resource, now and for the future. Irstea research is currently tackling this universal and practical issue.
