While 2021 was the year when world governments made the global water crisis top policy, 2022 is finding policymakers and business leaders under increased pressure to make changes in the way we use water.
Water Crisis Facts
With a rising sense of urgency, extreme water-related events have been increasing over the years. 1. Flood disasters have increased by 134% since the year 2000,
droughts have increased by 29%, and
water shortages have increased exponentially as well with over 3.5 billion people live in areas that are experiencing water scarcity.
Water is key to adaptation. 90% of climate disasters are water-related! If that isn’t enough, a number of countries and regions announced increasing water shortages and emergencies. As a direct effect, Glasgow hosted its first-ever Water Pavilion to cover topics such as the protection of natural systems and the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
Addressing the Global Water Crisis
Despite the alarming evidence revealing predicted future water shortages, many scientists and governments believe we have a hopeful year ahead due to more ambitious efforts to address these challenges in 2022.
With plastic already showing up in breastmilk, the oceans, breastmilk and tap water, it’s no wonder so many people across the United States are investing in water purification systems. In fact, in a projection published by Fortune Business Insights, here is what they predict is going to happen to the water purification market based on past trends:
In essence, water touches everything and is vital for humanity. It’s used for multiple life-sustaining purposes including food, environment, energy, and human health. Unfortunately, humanity has polluted much of it. In fact, out of all the water in the world, 2.5% is freshwater, and out of that only 1% is drinkable.
It’s time to make a change, and you can start by ensuring that the water coming into your home is safe to drink.
How Safe is Your Tap Water?
Drinkable fresh water is becoming a scarce resource, and it needs to be treated as such! Individual countries and regions need to address these problems quickly and the Ozarks are no exception.
