IMPORTANCE OF WATER

WEBLINKS

Every living thing on Earth depends on water. We humans, who are 60 per cent water, can’t survive without it for more than five days. We need water to drink, wash, deal with our waste and for food production. As the world population continues to grow and as we work to ensure that all people have enough to eat and drink – and have access to sanitation – water use is increasing.
