Access Update: The Importance of Water

Learn more about an important global challenge!

Water is essential to all life on Earth.

To understand the importance of water is to see how several global challenges are interlinked and how a sustainable solution to water scarcity is a permanent solution to many other challenges in the world. In the Western world, water scarcity is rarely a problem and restrictions on water usage are seldom put in place. However, this is not the case for the developing world. 700 million people do not have access to clean drinking water. Globally, one in three lack access to a toilet. Every day more than 1,600 children under the age of five die from diarrhoea as a result of drinking unsafe water.

Read more about the global water situation and what is being done to help those affected by it in the article by Tom Arne Skretteberg (see link below). Tasks are included.
