Why should you care about being a participant in sustainability?
Water is nature’s most precious resource. In other words, Water permeates life on Earth. Current patterns of water use involve excessive waste. The rising water pollution is causing immense harm to aquatic ecosystems leading to environmental imbalance.
Demand for fresh water is increasing with every passing day and the water levels across the globe are coming down and there are signs of stress on all water resources. More than two billion people are facing a scarcity of water and in the next 50 years, the amount of water needed will be double.
Thus, water has a strategic role both for present and future generations and should be managed using a systemic approach.
