CONTEXT: AN ACCELERATING GLOBAL WATER CRISIS
Our world is in the grips of a water crisis of epic proportions with over 2 billion people not having access to safe drinking water and billions more consuming water contaminated by pollution and inadequate waste treatment. Throughout the world, we face an escalating level of groundwater contamination with the problem further exacerbated by aging infrastructure and Agricultural run-off. Less of our fresh groundwater resources can be used for drinking without considerable decontamination and filtration. It is estimated that over 5 billion people, two-thirds of the world’s population, will suffer from water shortages by 2025. The shortages will reach 40% by 2030 with 17 countries currently at severe risk, surprisingly, including the United States.
THE PROBLEM IS SOLVABLE
In addition to the Global Water Crisis, there is a component Global Food Crisis that has been further exacerbated by the recent pandemic. Where there is no water there is no food. The fact is that these problems are so prominent it is preventing us from reaching many economic, social, and environmental goals!
