Walk 4 Water

Walk 4 Water | GEP Water resources | Scoop.it

10,000 steps (approximately 8km) is the average distance people walk every day just to reach water in the developing world. With water gathering predominately undertaken by women and children, this deprives women of time to earn a living and children of an education.

The weight of water that women in Africa and Asia carry is commonly 20kg, the same weight as an average car tyre.

Global Education Project, Victoria's insight:

Walk 4 Water is WaterAid Australia’s national annual fundraising event.

About | International Decade for Action 'Water for Life' 2005-2015 | GEP Water resources | Scoop.it

Water is essential for life. No living being on planet Earth can survive without it. It is a prerequisite for human health and well-being as well as for the preservation of the environment. However, four of every ten people in the world do not have access to even a simple pit latrine; and nearly two in ten have no source of safe drinking water. Every year millions of people, most of them children, die from diseases associated with inadequate water supply, sanitation, and hygiene

World Water Day 2014

World Water Day 2014 | GEP Water resources | Scoop.it

Water and energy are closely interlinked and interdependent. Energy generation and transmission requires utilization of water resources, particularly for hydroelectric, nuclear, and thermal energy sources. Conversely, about 8% of the global energy generation is used for pumping, treating and transporting water to various consumers.

 

In 2014, the UN System – working closely with its Member States and other relevant stakeholders – is collectively bringing its attention to the water-energy nexus, particularly addressing inequities, especially for the 'bottom billion' who live in slums and impoverished rural areas and survive without access to safe drinking water, adequate sanitation, sufficient food and energy services.
