Perpetrators of the Global Water Crisis and Advances in the Search for a Solution

Change.org, in an effort to assist in the global water problem, set up Blog Action Day, which estimates that about 1.8 billion people have access to the internet whereas a billion people do not have access to freshwater in sufficient amounts.

That notwithstanding, inroads have been made into the sector by engineers, investors and others to help solve this problem through water and waste water technology. This is evident from the fact that eight of these companies made the 2020 Global Cleantech 100 list, that is, Danfoss AuaZ, NanoH20, Emefcy, Aqwise, Oasys Water, TaKaDu, WaterHealth and Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies.

Other companies who have received funding include the water filtration companies Quench and Clean Filtration Technology, the antimicrobial technology company HaloSource, and i20 Water which uses a grid system to salvage water that might have been lost by ineffective systems.

Hence, with the intriguing facts revealed by the Living Planet through the WWF and Global Footprint, there is definitely a hope that there will be more initiatives set up to address the crisis.

The facts are:

Out of the 6.5 billion world population, 28% have access to the internet though 15% lack sufficient freshwater supplies. The crisis will become more serious with increasing human population, economic growth and climate change, resulting in an increase in prices of everything on the market.

Also, 71 countries are undergoing stress in blue water resources (withdrawn water), with 45 of these undergoing moderate or severe stress. Some of these countries include China, India, Morocco and Israel, which are major agricultural goods producers for the global market.

The 'water footprint' of a U.S. cup of coffee is 140 liters whereas that for a latte-to-go with sugar is about 200 liters. The 'water footprint' refers to the amount of water used throughout the production from growing to the final brewing, including the container it's served in. Also, the three countries with the largest 'production water footprint' (amount of rain or green water and blue water used in producing agricultural products) are, in decreasing order, India, China, then the U. S.

Other facts include the loss of more than 50% of the world's wetlands since 1900, about a third of the biggest cities getting water from protected areas, the agricultural industry being able to double production only until 2050 and according to the Living Planet Report, there was a decrease of 10% more in freshwater and marine species than in terrestrial species from 1970 to 2020.
