Water for the World

Par INPBPM :: mercredi 12 septembre 2012 à 20:16 :: Général

Clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in. There is sufficient fresh water on the planet to achieve this.But due to bad economics or poor infrastructure, every year millions of people, most of them children, die from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation and hygiene.Water scarcity, poor water quality and inadequate sanitation negatively impact food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities for poor families across the world. Drought afflicts some of the world's poorest countries, worsening hunger and malnutrition.By 2050, at least one in four people is likely to live in a country affected by chronic or recurring shortages of fresh water.

    • 1.7 billion people have gained access to safe drinking water since 1990, but 884 million people are still without.
    • 2.6 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services, such as toilets or latrines.
    • Each day, an average of 5,000 children die due to preventable water and sanitation-related diseases.
    • Hydropower is the most important and widely-used renewable source of energy, representing 19 per cent of total electricity production worldwide.
    • Approximately 70 per cent of all available water is used for irrigation.
    • Floods account for 15 per cent of all deaths related to natural disasters.
