By the end of the 21st century, due to “beach theft”, beaches will be a thing of the past. That is the alarming forecast of a growing number of scientists and environmental NGOs.

Sand has become a vital commodity for our modern economies: we use it in our toothpaste, detergents, cosmetics, computers and mobile phones couldn’t exist without it. Our houses, skyscrapers, bridges and airports are all basically made with sand: it has become the most widely consumed natural resource on the planet after fresh water.

Sand Wars takes you around the world as it tracks the contractors, sand smugglers and unscrupulous property developers involved in the gold rush of the 21st century.
