Urbanization makes Bolivia vulnerable to the effects of climate changes. At last survey, in 2001, the poor city of El Alto had a population growth of 5.1% a year. Old and used pipelines are the reason why as much as 50 % of the water in El Alto leaks away and never reaches the consumers. There is not enough water for everybody. The authorities ration the water supply by adjusting the water pressure. (image by Adrian Øhrn Johansen)
