cib Bali: The tropical Indonesian island that is running out of water
Denpasar, Bali - The people of Bali have shared water resources through "subak" - a sophisticated irrigation system that diverts water from channel to rice field and back - since the ninth century. More than just a means to water crops, subak is a manifestation of the Balinese Hindu philosophy of harmony between people, nature and the spiritual realm.

But the diversion of water to urban areas in the densely populated south in recent years and the overuse of groundwater by hotels accommodating the 16 million local and domestic tourists who visited the Indonesian island last year is disrupting the system.
