The importance of water conservationClean and fresh water is an essential resource for our survival. We should realize how important water conservation is for us. A large part of this world is facing water scarcity. Several regions face severe droughts every year which results even in the death of people as well as animals.
Although almost 71% of the Earth is inundated with water yet many parts of the world face clean water shortage. Conserving water is significant because it maintains water pure and clean while protecting the environment too.
Water conservation means that we should use available water wisely and should refrain from wasting clean water. It's our onus to keep our water clean from pollution as every individual depends on water for livelihood.
Water-saving is a practice followed by individuals who want to protect water by utilizing it more wisely. As we all depend on water for our survival, it is significant for us to comprehend and realize how we can conserve it for the usefulness of generations to come.
The unexpected expansion of population in the world puts forward pressing concerns about the rising need for clean water. Moreover, nations across the globe, regardless of prosperity, are encountering heightening concerns over the availability of the quantity of safe drinking water. It's been reported that over 1.1 billion people today lack access to clean drinking water – approximately one-sixth of the world's population. Half of the kids born in the developing countries will live in homes without access to improved water and sanitation, which lays their survival and growth at considerable hazard. As a result of poor hygiene and lack of access to water and sanitation, 1.5 million children under five die every year because of diarrhoeal diseases alone.
As a common man, we should keep our family aware of using water wisely. We should also suggest other people that they should refrain from wasting clean water. It's observed that some people waste water and leave the tap on for running water because we do not face the problem of water scarcity in our region. There are some regions in our country where water is not easily available like in remote areas of Rajasthan. Where the people face a shortage of water they know the importance of water. We need to understand that natural resources can be exhausted anywhere in the world. If it happens in our region we can't survive. The sooner we realize this issue, the better.
