The World’s Water Facts

Posted on October 20, 2015

Water is the world’s most valuable commodity, serving not only as a vital factor in humanity’s existence, but also at the forefront of many of our man-made inventions. With such an in-demand substance, there are unfortunately difficulties involving water shortages, contaminations and other issues throughout the world. Water, at the same time as giving life, can cause serious issues to the human race in terms of health and climate-related problems.

Here, we list some of the most important water facts that exist in our world today:

  • Around the world, women and children spend approximately 140 million hours collecting water every day.
  • One in every nine people, working out at around 750 million around the world, do not have access to safe water.
  • Each year, more than 840,000 people die from a water-related disease – a number greater than the entire population of the city of San Francisco.
  • Diarrhea caused by unsafe drinking water, poor sanitation and poor hand hygiene is responsible for the deaths of around 842,000 people around the world annually, or around 2,300 every day.
  • More than double the population of the USA live each day without access to safe, clean water.
  • Of the people without access to safe water, only 18% of them live in urban areas, while 82% are from rural areas.
  • More people around the world own a mobile phone than they do a toilet.
  • Without serious action, two-thirds of our world’s population will be faced with water scarcity by the year 2025.
  • A staggering 90 percent of the alpine glaciers throughout Europe are currently in retreat due to issues of global warming.
  • 20 percent of our world’s total surface water is currently under threat in a serious manner.
