WATER SCARCITY – GLOBAL CHALLENGE

💧Did you know that 2 billion people on earth do not have access to safe and clean water? Every 20 seconds, a child dies from diseases related to the lack of clean water and sanitation?

💧2025: Approximately 35% of the global population is expected to be severely water deficient.

💧2030: Human demand for water will exceed supply by 40% (according to WB).  

💧2040: It is estimated that the world’s population will increase to 9 billion people, and freshwater reserves only meet 70% of demand (according to the UN). 

💧2050: About 70% of the population will face water shortages, poor water quality, disease outbreaks, and food shortages.  

👉Therefore, the depletion of water resources, the increasing demand for clean water, and the deterioration of water quality are global challenges that humanity has to face.
