Top Issue Facing Humanity is Water post by Charles Laverty

Water

Top issue facing humanity is water.  This household staple that comes out of our faucets in many homes is a crucial issue around the globe.  At its core, water is a critical development for energy and food production.  Water is also critical for our human survival and to maintain healthy ecosystems.

Some of the main point about water I found on UN.org site.    I read that 2.1 billion people lack access to safely managed drinking water services. More points they made are below:

  • 4.5 billion people lack safely managed sanitation services. (WHO/UNICEF 2017)
  • 340,000 children under five die every year from diarrhoeal diseases. (WHO/UNICEF 2015)
  • Water scarcity already affects four out of every 10 people. (WHO)
  • 90% of all natural disasters are water-related. (UNISDR)
