The following cartoons were translated from their original French version on the Meli Melo website (Meli-Melo: Demelons les fils de l'eau roughly translates as Let us unravel the story of water). They are a fantastic educational tool to get IWM concepts and ideas across. Meli Melo passionately promotes free use and reproduction of their materials, so feel free to download the whole lot and use them as much as you can.
The French Meli Melo website uses movies, artwork, drawings and images to help the community understand issues and challenges related to water management. The site covers a huge spectrum of water issues and demonstrates that while the issues are serious and complex, it is still possible to live both comfortably and in harmony with natural systems. The messages on the site are universally relevant to urban design and environmental protection.
The site is a creation of The GRAIE Association, a non-profit French research and capacity building organisation focused on water management and urban planning.
