Where there is water, there is life. Water is not only essential for creatures to live on this planet, but also very significant to the economic development of households, communities and nations. Water shortage is worldwide problem. How to utilize water resource sustainably has become one of the foci for the whole society. Northern China faces serious water shortage, where water resources have been overexploited for a long time, rivers became dried, the underground water was over exploited, and the river ecology and environment became deteriorated (Lu et al，2014; Deng & Zhao, 2014).
Water is a critical source used all around the world to keep our way of life flowing. The use of water goes from regular house needs to creating energy in many ways. Around the world drinkable water starting to run low and the water stored is being contaminated by pollutants causing sickness and death. Countries are going through droughts which affects the water supply needed to maintain irrigation, and public supply. Water pollution is defined as the presence in groundwater of toxic chemicals and biological agents that exceed what is naturally found in the water and may pose a threat to human health and/or the environment.
Food wastage also affects the availability of food in a country. According to the National Farmers Union, food wastage in developing countries mostly occurs due to inaccessible road and lack of proper storage result in food rot. Meanwhile in developed country, food wastage occurs due to excessive food which proves the unequal distribution of food across the world
An uneven distribution of fresh water around the world also causes an increase in humanitarian organizations. The organizations help bring safe drinking water to developing nations and disaster areas. Still, not all people are peaceful. For example, when Egypt felt exposed to Ethiopia altering the Nile, they threatened to use military power. Another example is in Central Asia, the arid climates in some of the former Soviet Union countries causes a lack of water, leading to
Dennis B. Blanton describes how causing more and more freshwater is becoming brackish causing fresh water to become scarce. To be able to get drinking water, the colonists dug wells across the land. However, the wells became vulnerable to drought and salt water intrusion. He also talks about how the transition affects the water. Due to the saltwater transition, and the filth within the water, the water was the reason for many diseases.
Water shortages will impact both health and agriculture directly” (Gilman). With the expanding effect of climate change throughout the world, water shortages have been an ongoing issue in many countries. As the author mentions, these numbers drastically
Sources of fresh water are necessary for health care, agriculture and industry. Water supplies used to be relatively constant, but now in many places demand exceeds the sustainable supply, with dramatic consequences in the short and long term. Large cities dependent on significant supplies of water have experienced periods of shortage, and at critical moments these have not always been administered with sufficient oversight and impartiality. Water poverty especially affects Africa where large sectors of the population have no access to safe drinking water or experience droughts which impede agricultural production. Some countries have areas rich in water while others endure drastic
Globally, the international organizations and private organizations, these all are creating problems for the people. Because of these organizations, they take control the water and they limitedly distributed the water to the dwellers to the cities and the rural areas. While allocating the water to the people, they unequally shared with
This severe water pollution problem has severely affected the life of all Tianjin residents, including me. People 's lives cannot be separated from water, but the price of household water purification system is very high; therefore, not all families can afford. Then the poor are forced to use the polluted water. Their health will suffer great harm and also may increase the risk of infectious diseases. Thus, the Government may need to invest a large amount of money for medical needs of urban residents.
In certain less developed countries, more than one-half of the population is without access to safe water.” All those people who are homeless or live in a place where it doesn’t rain a lot don’t have as much water. It could be a place that has tons of water but then one day they could lose it all due to a drought. Also Humans Pollution: Environment explains, “The future of the world's water resources depends on improving management policies and practices globally. Water management institutions must incorporate efficient techniques for using water in industry and agriculture. And most important, management policies must involve the interests of the local community in collaboration with national
