The numbers are staggering. Millions of people each year are affected by inadequate or unclean water. Over half of the worlds hospital beds are filled with people that suffer from a water related disease. The lack of safe drinking water can cause a number of waterborne diseases. Typhoid fever, hepatitis and cholera are just a few diseases that are the result of poor water management. An estimated three quarters of a million children younger than 5 years of age perish from diarrhea caused by contaminated water each year, mostly in developing countries.
Water is one of our most important natural resources. Clean water is a basic human right and should be accessible to all communities. People care deeply about clean water. Our rivers, bays, lakes, and streams are vital to a healthy environment and a vibrant economy. Above all, we need clean, safe drinking water to live.
Every day, people, animals, and plants depend on water for their survival. Water is necessary for growing food, energy production, individual well-being, and global health.
Investments to improve drinking water, sanitation, hygiene and water resource management systems makes strong economic sense: every dollar invested leads to up to eight dollars in benefits. And the benefits do not stop there. Higher economic productivity, more education, and health-care savings are just some of the reasons to promote a healthy water management program.
