  6. 6. "The radical inequality of the consequences of climate change takes material form in the increasing frequency or exacerbation of natural events - such as floods or tornadoes - which are in principle familiar natural occurrences and are not self evidently the product of societal decisions. The expression force of nature takes on a new meaning: the natural law evidence of natural catastrophes produces a naturalization of social relations of inequality and power." - Ulrich Beck, Remapping social inequalities in an age of climate change: for a cosmopolitan renewal of sociologyOmari Washington, Andreas Theodoridis & Kristin Bell
  7. 7. In 1995, more than half of Senegal’s population lived in urban areas, primarily in the capital, Dakar. In Dakar, water shortages were chronic, leaks persistent, sanitation barely existed in poor peripheral neighborhoods, and only 58 percent of the population had access through household connections to safe, piped water. In urban areas overall, that figure was 40 percent.About 1.6 million people living in cities gained access to safe water. Senegal’s level of connectionto urban water services is now the highest in sub-Saharan Africa. - The World Bank, Int. Development Association, 2009Omari Washington, Andreas Theodoridis & Kristin Bell
