Can you imagine not using any water for a day? It’s almost impossible, and certainly not comfortable! Almost all man-made objects require the use of water at some point during their manufacture. There is so much water in our everyday lives, it’s very easy to just take it for granted. It is usually only once rains stop and fresh water supplies dry up or are polluted that we remember we can’t afford to use water without thinking about how to ensure clean supplies for the future. To make sure everyone has enough, healthy water, 2013 has been chosen to be the International Year of Water Cooperation. So let us think about how to share this precious resource fairly and sustainably! There is enough water for all of us, but sometimes good planning is needed to make sure it’s available where it’s most needed.
