Default The Water Gap - The State of the World’s Water 2018

not C.C. but clean drinkable water or the growing lack of it.



The Water Gap - The State of the World’s Water 2018

Report: from WaterAid, Published on 22 Mar 2018

2018 may well be remembered as the year one of the world’s great tourist destinations ran out of water.

In a startling reminder that our world’s most precious resource is becoming increasingly scarce for too much of the population, Cape Town hit the headlines for declaring a date for Day Zero: the day on which city taps run dry.

But long queues and limited water supplies are already happening in many other less headline-worthy locales, reminding us of the need for better and fairer management of Earth’s water supply.

Already more than 60% of humanity lives in areas of water stress, where the supply of water cannot or will not continue to meet demand. If water is not managed more prudently – from source, to tap, and back to source – the crises observed today will become the catastrophes of tomorrow.

This year’s The State of the World’s Water reveals that the number of people defined as without clean water close to home has gone up, with new entries in our ranking.

Some 844 million people are now struggling to access life’s most essential requirement – almost 200 million more than previously counted.
