World Water Day: Did you know?

85% of the world population lives in the driest half of the planet


6 to 8 million people die annually from the consequences of disasters and water-related diseases


About 66% of Africa is arid or semi-arid and more than 300 of the 800 million people in sub-Saharan Africa live in a water-scarce environment


Water for irrigation and food production constitutes one of the greatest pressures on freshwater resources. Agriculture accounts for ~70% of global freshwater withdrawals (up to 90% in some fast-growing economies)


MY LIFE RIGHT NOW.
