World Water Day: Why it matters 2.5 billion no access to clean #WATER 6 to 8 million people die yearly

World Water Day: Why it matters 2.5 billion no access to clean #WATER 6 to 8 million people die yearly | Water Security | Scoop.it

Since 1992 the U.N. has tried to bring attention to the quality of our Earth's water, but how bad is it really? -  With much of the Earth's surface covered in water, 70 percent to be exact, it's hard to imagine that there could ever be a problem with water shortages, much less such scarcity that a global security issue has been shaped. According to the United Nations, 783 million people do not have access to clean water, almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation, and 6 to 8 million people die annually from the consequences of disasters and water-related disease.
