World Water Day: March 22

 

The 22nd of March is World Water Day! The goal of World Water Day is to raise awareness of the global water crisis, in which more than 2 billion people lack access to clean, safe drinking water. Water is a human right that is essential for everyday life, so it is imperative that we focus on this issue as it affects people’s day-to-day lives significantly and take action to ensure that every person has access to water and sanitation by 2030.
Conflict can arise from a lack of access to or scarcity of clean drinking water, as well as from the perception that access is unequal, particularly as populations grow and the effects of climate change intensify.

This is the reason why ‘water for peace’ is the theme of World Water Day this year, which aims to balance everyone’s water needs by fostering and promoting unity and collaboration within and between nations and communities.
UNICEF reported that 4,000 people die every day as a result of diseases contracted from drinking contaminated water.

Safe drinking water is not only a concern in third-world countries, but also in first-world countries like New Zealand, as evidenced by the outbreak of campylobacter bacteria in Havelock North in 2016, which resulted in 4 deaths and 5,000 illnesses.

All Clear is proud to be playing a role in protecting people by preventing them from becoming ill or contracting water-related diseases by testing water at properties to assure the safety and security of drinking water that is free of contaminants that are typically odourless and colourless but have serious health effects.
