SDG 6 - Clean Water and Sanitation

Water scarcity affects more than 40% of people worldwide. Due to global warming as a result of climate change, this rate is certainly expected to increase even more. Since 1990, 2.1 billion people have been provided with better water and sanitary conditions, but the decline in safe drinking water resources is a major problem affecting all continents. In 2011, 41 countries experienced water shortages. In ten of these countries, renewable clean water resources will soon be depleted and the need to use alternative sources will arise. These trends are getting worse due to increased drought and desertification. By 2050, it is estimated that at least one in four people will be affected by frequent water shortages.
