Water Is… Everything!


Human Wrongs Watch

“Water is precious. We need liters to survive, giga liters for food production and mega liters for energy manufacture. Without clean water, disease runs rampant. Without water, humans – and civilizations perish after three days…”

…”With desertification, land degradation and drought (DLDD), the water we need to live has literally been evaporating from our hands. DLDD endangers our future, but we are the decision-makers – we can reverse this cycle.” This is how the UN Convention to Combat Decertification (UNCCD) announces the World Water Day, to be marked on 22 March 2015.

And these are some of the materials which the World Water Dayhas prepared:
