United Nations Scribe, Ban Ki – Moon Marks World Water Day

 

 

United Nations SecretaryGeneral Ban Ki-moon today.declared  that as the perils of climate change increasingly threaten the planet, the international community must unite in “a spirit of urgent cooperation” to address the many water-related challenges facing humanity.

He made this declaration in his message marking the 2015 edition of World Water Day, observed annually on 22 March, the Secretary-General warned that access to safe drinking water and sanitation was among “the most urgent issues” affecting populations across the globe.

Ban affirmed that the onset of climate change, growing demand on finite water resources from agriculture, industry and cities, and increasing pollution in many areas are hastening a water crisis that can only be addressed by cross-sectoral, holistic planning and policies – internationally, regionally and globally..

In the same vein, UN has reported that despite progress under the Millennium Development Goals , some 750 million people, or more than 1 in 10 of the world’s population, remain without access to an improved water supply. women and children are particularly affected.

  9. First off I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you
    don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    thoughts before writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to
    be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    hints? Appreciate it!
