Transcript of Water
What water can make us do.
In some places water is very limited,
In the Sub-Saharan area, when someone is thirsty they must walk over
to get water
Iceland has the most stable in the world
While other places have a
Somalia has the least secure water supply
Ownership of Water
Some bodies of water are contained within the boundaries of one country....
... while others are shared between two or more countries
I think that this will be the case, because we are losing freshwater over time, so there will not be enough water for everyone
But, should the countries own those waters......?
"The wars of the future are going to be fought over water."
Did you know that...
Women and children spend 140 million hours a day collecting water
Every minute a child dies of a water-related disease
1 in 9 people lack access to safe water
More people have a mobile phone than a toilet
How can these wars be prevented
These wars can be prevented if everyone uses less water and only when they need too. (ex. washing and drinking).
of the world's population
of the world's potable water
20% of the worlds potable water
FOUR TIMES MORE!
5% of the worlds population
We do not think that countries should have ownership over the water within their border because there is an unfair distribution of water over the world.
Is this fair?
Why are we losing fresh water?
The quantity of food needed to feed the planet increases.
Freshwater is already a scarce resource, only 2.5 % of the Earths water is fresh water and only 1 % is easily accessible.
Will the wars of the future be fought over water?
The population only grows, but the freshwater doesn't.
Pollution is contaminating the water.
