Water is our most essential resource
Water has a direct impact on health and is a
critical enabler for development
Water and Human Development 2011
  • Access to safe drinking water is critical for
    health, especially for children
  • Poor quality water can make workers unproductive
    and take them out of the workforce altogether
  • Over 50 of the worlds hospital beds are
    occupied by people suffering from water related
  • 80 of diseases in developing countries are
    attributed to poor quality water

Water is our most essential resource
Water is key for food production
Water is a key driver of agricultural production
affecting yields and crop failure
Water scarcity will be the major constraint on
food production in the next few decades
2000-5,000 liters water needed to produce a
persons daily food
Irrigated agriculture accounts for 80 of global
water use and 40 of worlds food production
Food production will need to increase by 70 by
2050, impacting demand for water
Demand for irrigation and use of agrichemicals is
a major source of water pollution

Water is our most essential resource
Our energy system is heavily reliant on water and
also has an impact on our water system
Energy production accounts for 49 of total water
use in the US and 44 in the EU
Water consumption for energy production will
increase 130 in the EU between 2000 and 2030
Each year 260,000 barrels of oil spill into the
Niger Delta
Energy production growth is expected to require
165 increase in water use between 2000 and 2025
in the US
US oil and gas industry produces 60m barrels of
wastewater daily
Impact on water quality from hydraulic
fracturing fracking- has led to its ban in
many areas including parts of the US, South
Africa and Australia

increases for electric power in California

Intensifying global water vulnerabilities
Problems with water quality and wastewater are
2m tons
  • Sewage and industrial and agricultural waste are
    discharged into the worlds water daily

  • Number of people globally that do not have access
    to improved sources of drinking water

  • Growth in number of people using bottled water in
    urban areas to meet drinking water needs, from
    26m in 1990 to 192m in 2010
  • Sewage levels in rivers in the US could be back
    to the super-polluted levels of the 1970s by the
    year 2016
  • With population growth, the number of people
    without access to safe water expected to rise to
    2 billion by 2025
  • By 2050, nearly 70 of the worlds population is
    expected to live in urban areas, magnifying
    existing challenges managing water and wastewater
