The Usable Water on Earth:
Needless to mention, Water is one of the most crucial elements of life; without water, the survival of life on this planet would be next to impossible.
Although there is a large portion of the earth covered under water, we all know that only 0.3% of this water is fit for consumption.
As the times are changing so is the fresh and consumable water requirements. There have been cases already where cities, states, and even countries are running out of the water and limited water supply is been provided to meet the ends as far as water is concerned.
The United Nations Effort Towards Sustainable Water Management
To promote sustainable management of freshwater reservoir, the United Nation observes the 22nd of March every year as the World Water Day
Every year the UN decides upon a theme to spread awareness on various concerns related to the issue.
The theme for 2019 is ‘Leaving no one behind’ an adaptation of the central promise of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development: as sustainable development progresses, everyone must benefit.
The UN has set a goal for the year 2030 – to ensure the sustainable management and availability of safe and hygienic water for households, schools, workplaces, farms, factories as well as other marginalized groups.
Whoever You Are, Wherever You Are, Water Is Your Human Right
Access to water is crucial for public health and is therefore critical for sustainable development and a stable, prosperous world. We cannot move forward as a global society while so many people are living without safe water.
Human Right to Water:
In 2010, the UN recognized “the right to safe and clean drinking water and sanitation as a human right that is crucial for the full satisfaction of life and all human rights.”
The human right to water entitles everyone, without discrimination, to sufficient, safe, acceptable, physically accessible and affordable water for personal and domestic use; which includes water for drinking, personal sanitation, washing of clothes, food preparation, and personal and household hygiene.
Our Pledge for Responsible Water Usage:
We at the Iris Florets Preschools pledge to upon to use water responsibly and to teach the younger generation the same. Also, we urge everyone reachable through this post as well as another medium to acknowledge the importance of water and recognize the various problems related to the issue.
Collectively we all can work together and fulfill the UN’s foreseen Agenda of ‘leaving no one behind’.
