A youth cools himself off at a water fountain near Marina Bay in Singapore July 27, 2015. Fifty years ago, Singapore was rationing water and struggling with smelly rivers devoid of fish and choked with waste from shipbuilding, pig and duck farms, and toilets that emptied directly into the streams. At that time, the 700 sq km island nation relied on three protected reservoirs and water imported from neighbouring Malaysia. Today, Singapore collects rainwater from two-thirds of its land through an 8,000-km drain network into 17 reservoirs; reclaims "used water" from a deep tunnel sewerage system up to 60 m below ground; and is developing technology to halve the energy used to desalinate seawater.

Pink flamingos are seen at sunset in the Camargue regional natural park, near Arles, southern France, April 12, 2015. Situated in the delta of the Rhone River on the French Mediterranean coast, classified by UNESCO, the Camargue Biosphere Reserve is made up of a mosaic of lagoons of fresh, brackish and saline wetlands, one of the most important in Europe. The Camargue covers an area of over 930 km? (360 square miles) with an exceptional biological diversity and home to unique breeds of horses and bulls, and more than 400 species of birds including pink flamingos.  The marshy land could be impacted by climate changes and coastal erosion in the future as one scientific model for the year  2100 predicts the ocean level rising 50 cm above current levels, and another estimating a 1 metre level rise. Paris will host the World Climate Summit in 2015, called the COP21.     Picture taken April 12, 2015.   REUTERS/Jean-Paul Pelissier - RTX1CR1P
