Water is good; it benefits all things and does not compete with them.(Lao-tzu)

I saw this website on LinkedIn and was interested in the use of Chinese and Japanese characters for water.    http://www.flood-risk-bolivia.eu.pn/index.html
“The present research is supported by the Japan Society for the Promotion of Sciences (JSPS). The project began its research activities on November 2014. The logo selected is quite simple but meaningful. It consists on the map of Bolivia and inside the map it is the kanji for the word Shuǐ (Chinese) or Mizu (Japanese) that means water. The kanji looks like a drop water. It was decided to use the symbol of water, as everything relates somehow to water. Water is the most vital element for life, but it can also become the most destructive force.”
