Water scarcity in its various forms is one of the biggest threats to human health, to progress, prosperity, and social stability.
Every twenty seconds, somewhere on this planet, another child dies of waterborne disease or sanitation-related illnesses.
Over 2.6 billion people lack access to clean water and basic sanitation today. More people have a mobile phone than a toilet.
And water scarcity, caused by man-made desertification and climate phenomena like El Niño/La Niña, is by no means limited
to the Global South. In the state of Texas for example, the 2011 drought was the worst on record, affecting 25 million people,
killing 500,000,000 trees, and exceeding 6 billion USD in damage. The global grand total of water-related damages can only
vaguely be estimated.
the remaining 2.5% is fresh water, almost 68.7% is frozen in ice caps and glaciers.
- Only 1% of total water resources on earth are available for human use, while 70% of the earth's surface is covered with water, 97.5% of this water is saline. Of
- Up to 30% of fresh water is lost due to leakage in developed countries, and in some major cities, losses can be up to 40% to 70%.
- About 90% of sewage and 70% of industrial waste in developing countries is discharged into rivers without treatment, often polluting the usable water supply.
- A person living in sub-Saharan Africa uses about 10 to 20 liters (2-5 Gallons) of water per day on average, a Canadian uses 326 liters (86 gallons) per day.
