Water Scarcity By: suMone spivey

There are nearly 783 million people who do not have access to clean and drinkable water.

The places colored on the map are the ones who are approaching water scarcity quickly and are trying to fix this problem. Many of these places do not have the money to fix this environmental problem.
Nearly 1 billion people face a water scarcity problem, be it cleaning or drinking.

The United Nations are currently working on the water problems in this country, though I don't know if it is their number one priority.

The video shows someone who doesn't have to deal with water scarcity in their life, view life through the lens of someone who does.

This photo shows how everyone in the world who have to share the water in the world.

There is enough water in the world to share and spread to everyone, though many are greedy and others lack the basic systems needed to disperse the water.

The United Nations has been working to try and fix the scarcity problem in the world. They have worked hard in the past and have goals in set to try and fix it.

"The target of reducing by 50 per cent the proportion of people without access to improved sources of water by 2015."

"The United Nations Water Conference (1977), the International Drinking Water Supply and Sanitation Decade (1981-1990), the International Conference on Water and the Environment (1992) and the Earth Summit (1992)"

With everyone's help we can try and fix this problem for he present and the future.
