The world water crisis
What we consider as normal here in Scotland is far away from the reality of 2.2 billion people worldwide without access to safely managed drinking water.
The importance of water as a means of maintaining hygiene has become crystal clear throughout the ongoing pandemic. Every year more than 1.5 million children die from water-related diseases. In turn, the WHO estimates that every Pound invested in water and sanitation has an economic return of £2 – £26. We want to raise awareness for the world water crisis.
Find some more information on the world water crisis below. There we provide you with links to general information of the United Nations and its Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) concerning safe drinking water. It is especially interesting for us in the industry, who do not only rely on fresh water on a personal level, but on a professional level too.
