Water scarcity affecting 40% of world population

World water day

Environment experts reveal that water scarcity affects about 40% of the world’s population and is bound to worsen as a result of climate change. The board chairman National Forestry Authority Gershom Onyango is concerned that the world is not treating the gravity of water crisis as seriously and calls on government to ensure the effective management of the eco—system to ensure the sustainability of water.

Onyango further says  that the population is growing too fast for the current water scope to sustain and that deserts are fast spreading beyond their boundaries. He says it is not just the quantity of water that should be maintained but also the quality.

Today the world marks World water day under the theme ‘Better water, better jobs’
