Celebrating Life Water Gives Us


271

Every year on 22 March we celebrate World Water Day. But this year is different. It will go to history as the year when we set the course for the future.

When the post-2015 development agenda is finalized this fall, it will shape the global agenda for water. But not only for the 10 to 15 years to come: the decisions we make this year and the paths we choose will influence generations to come.

Today, freshwater resources and their ecosystems are being degraded and depleted at an alarming speed – this despite our awareness of their pivot role to life on earth and the production of food, energy, goods and services.

  2. I’m sure that millions of people will be waiting to hear the outcomes of the 2015 development agenda. It’s very alarming to read statistics about the depletion and degredation of water resources. Some major changes and improvements must be made, that much is obvious. Thank you for the link to further aspects/examples of this huge problem, Joycelin. :).

    1. Thank you for reading Millie. It is a very scary problem. I hope…I came from a place where we had plenty of rain and washing water but not drinking water. We walked for miles to get it. Water has always been precious and I cringe when my boys are in the shower for more than 3 minutes. They hate me screaming me at them. 🙂
