Scope and content

English transcription: Water pollution an international problem. Rivers and seas carrying along detergents, chemical products and refuse of all kinds, are becoming more and more polluted and, therefore, dangerous for man and aquatic life. In the face of this growing peril, a number of countries in the world launched, five years ago, an International Hydrological Decade to ensure a continuing supply of pure water for man and UNESCO has prepared a report on the first results which have been obtained.
French transcription: La pollution des eaux, un fléau international. Partout, les rivières et les mers charrient des détergents, des produits chimiques et des détritus de toutes sortes, mettant en danger la santé des hommes et la vie aquatique. Devant l'ampleur de ce péril, les États du monde ont lancé, il y a cinq ans, une décennie hydrologique internationale pour sauver l'eau pure et l'UNESCO a procédé à un inventaire des premiers résultats obtenus.
Description: In the foreground several young children, some barefoot, at a nearly-dried-up water basin loaded with debris, especially rubber tyres and pieces of metal. One boy is walking on a wooden plank above the basin. In the background several buildings and more people with backs to camera.
