[Ambassador report] The Problem with Water

by Jaewon Chang | 24-01-2020 21:45 Comments 6 Comments recommendations 0 recommendations



When you go to the bathroom and brush your teeth, do you leave the tap running? This is a relatively common act performed by many. In this report, I wish to introduce an issue that is associated with water, namely Water Scarcity. Water Scarcity is dearth of water to meet the demands for it within a region. Simply put, the issue refers to the lack of water.

There are various ways in which water is used, with the most well-known being clean drinking water. Around our Earth, approximately 1.2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water. There are other uses of water in sectors such as agriculture, industry and electricity. The World Economic Forum has listed the shortage of water as a global issue that poses one of the biggest threats in its potential impact to our Earth over the next decade.

We as youth must realize that although we are only 1 in 7 billion people on earth, collectively we are much more. Through our collective effort, water scarcity issues can be surely be resolved.

    Hello Jaewon

    Water scarcity is probably the most important environmental issue of the world, since no human can survive without water, especially drinking water. I'm surprised by the huge number of people who lack the access to the clean water. As you mentioned, this problem can be resolved with the efforts of people who got enough amount of water for daily uses. I hope those little efforts can be gathered and make changes to the world.

    Thank you for the great report on important topic!

    Hey Jaewon!
    This is your mentor Lisa.

    I felt really guilty when I read your article because just now I have been taking a long hot shower and of course I left the water running even as I was washing my hair. Even if I know that saving water is a real small effort that can bring a big change, I just cannot resist the hot shower after hard work. But I do know that I'm just making myself an excuse.
    I should really change my habit or else I will be a hypocrite!

    Thanks once again for warning us of our daily behavior
