I wish I had something positive to share on this World Water Day, but I am at loss for words given the current circumstances. 💔😥
The world is facing an approaching water crisis, with demand expected to outrun supply by 40% by the end 2030, so we have what? 8 years to try and fix this? At this point I don't even know if that's possible.
With poor water management in agriculture, water pollution and inefficient infrastructure, water crisis is not new for many countries, including Pakistan. But it is now getting worse than even and there is no time to waste!
Governments, all over the world must stop allowing the extraction and overuse of water through misdirected agricultural subsidies, and industries from mining to manufacturing must do something about their wasteful practices.

Johan Rockstrom, the director of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research says “The scientific evidence is that we have a water crisis. We are misusing water, polluting water, and changing the whole global hydrological cycle, through what we are doing to the climate. It’s a triple crisis.” There have been experts in the past who warned the governments about the current almost irreversible water crisis, but they all did what they do best and that was NOTHING!
Do we still have time to fix this?????? I am not so sure.
