World Water Day, on 22 March every year, is about focusing attention on the importance of water. This year’s theme, ‘Water and Climate Change’, explores how water and climate change are inextricably linked.
As the global population grows, so does the demand for water, which depletes natural resources and damages the environment in many places. Solutions include protecting carbon sinks such as oceans and wetlands, adopting climate-smart agricultural techniques, and increasing the safe reuse of wastewater.
Water is our most precious resource – we must use it more responsibly. We must balance all of society’s water needs while ensuring the poorest people don’t get left behind. We cannot afford to wait. Climate policy makers must put water at the heart of action plans.
Water can help fight climate change. There are sustainable, affordable and scalable water and sanitation solutions.Everyone has a role to play. In our daily lives, there are surprisingly easy steps we can all take to address climate change. (source: unwater.org)
One easy step we all can take is to ditch plastic bottled water. The amount of plastic waste from plastic bottled water is impressive and most of it goes to rivers and seas. Use glass bottles and/or drinking water from home tap.
