March 22, has been marked as the World Water Day by the United Nations.
Although the earth has 1.4 billion cubic kilometers of water, only 0.001 percent of that is available for humans to consume and use. 70 % of water is used for agricultural purposes. Water supplies across the globe are facing increasing pressures from climate change and growing population. It is crucial to develop innovative water saving systems for the future.
This years theme – Nature for Water – works around how we can use nature to overcome the water challenges in the years to come. The answer to this problem is in nature and how we can use nature to overcome the crisis.
The objective is to work collectively on the water-related crisis that exists around the world. So let us come together and work towards harmonizing the green infrastructure with the grey infrastructure. Growing more trees, creating new forests, recoupling rivers to plains, and refurbishing wetlands will harmonize the water cycle and improve human health and living.
So this World Water Day let us join hands to craft ways to save water and save the world!
