Unlike war and terrorism, the global water crisis does not make media headlines, despite the fact that it claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns. Unlike natural disasters, it does not rally concerted international action, despite the fact that more people die each year from drinking dirty water than from the world’s hurricanes, floods, tsunamis, and earthquakes combined.
Sweden Water Export
Water – the origin of life and our most basic need.
We all need water to survive. The world’s water resources is very unbalanced – in some places there is an abundance, in other there is a great need. Drought, natural disasters and conflicts often aggravates the situation and can create immediate needs of clean drinking water.
Every minute four people die due to water-related diseases.
In Sweden we have an abundance of crystal clear lakes and rivers with water that could give millions of people a better life. Sweden Water Export is a good initiative to create a balance among the world’s water resources. We can make a difference.
