You don’t know the worth of water until the well runs dry ~ Ben Franklin
Water is essential for human need, of course, we can live without gas and electricity but water is the main factor for the survival and due to the growth of population at higher rate shows that issues regarding the decrement of water have been raised in past years.
Around the world, the use of the water among people and for natural forces are the main cause of decrement of water from the globe – there is a need for awareness among people to use the water in an organized way. The pressure of water is increasing as a result of the human population as well as growing competition for water, pollution, and urbanization.
Resources of water on Earth:
The water is available on earth in different forms including glaciers, ice caps and is located in different regions of the earth, or below the surface.
- The rain, snow or dew is also playing a key role in the supply of water on earth.
- The glaciers that exist in cold temperature in many states supply water depending upon the climate temperature of the region but the fact is that many of them are destroyed due to change of temperature of an area.
- The wetlands also an important role but the fact is that they are also destroyed.
- Most of the fresh water is found below the ground surface and an important role for the supply of water.
Countries Facing Water Crisis & Strategies to Tackle:
The water decrement is becoming the issue of the world as a lot of places are available where enough amount of water is not available for the survival of people – contrary to this, a lot of areas are located where the measurement of water is much high than their use; the information of some countries that facing water decrement problems and are ready to tackle the problem are below:
The world largest populated country is facing a problem of water decrement in its north state whereas the plenty of water is available in the south region. They are facing this problem due to excessive use of water due to growing population as well as pollution – the poor management of water is also another issue due to which blankness of long-term funding water is not available.
China Policy over the problem:
The Chinese government is working on the project namely ‘South-to-North Water Diversion Project’ in which they are working to transfer south water towards the North region i.e. 44.8 billion cubits of water is transferred every year. This is the world expensive project and expected to cost $62 billion – this cost is three times larger than the cost required to develop ‘three gorges dam’.
- United Arab Emirates (Dubai):
Dubai one of the most desirable country for the tourism is facing the shortage of water, the water is decreasing rapidly due to the excessive use of water as it is considered in top three countries in water use along UAE and Canada and unable to provide energy sources to support rich lifecycle.
Dubai Strategy over the issue:
The UAE has recently paid the researchers $5m to find the ways for rainmaking clouds to get drops of water from a cloud on demand in the future. The researcher’s team is working to define the algorithm to identify the promising clouds to the region – similarly many hotels start the reuse water for flushing toilet and are working to expand water reuse.
The American’s also facing the problem of water shortage as there is a prediction that by 2030, the whole world will face the water shortage issue in their region. The water shortage is grown rapidly as the supplier is delivering water to the stores with the charge of four times higher than the exact amount due to a shortfall of the water in the state.
California over the problem:
The US government is making a plan over the situation and developing a strategy to check every single leakage of the building to reserve the water for the future and develop the life saver bottles for the preservation use of water.
Some Solutions to Water Shortage:
The world is facing the biggest issue of water shortage and here is a preferable solution towards the situation i.e. these solutions implemented by the person in his life to save his nation for the future.
- CO2 Cleaning:
The industry always require water as they have a large amount of waste also e.g. a car needs 40,000 gallons of water for its preparation – can you imagine this water will benefit a lot to the nation so the technology has come to replace the water with CO2 and it will save a lot of water.
- Fake shower:
Everyone needs to wash his body in morning – here is the way to use the fake shower i.e. a lotion that has capabilities to remove the odors, bioflavonoids can be applied to any part of the body with no side effect – prefer these types of lotion for the time of the shower.
- Solar-power purifiers:
A girl invented the machine namely solar-power purifier that helps worldwide people to purify the contaminated water with this machine except for any other outside source and make it reasonable for drinking purposes.
