SALI SOCIAL AWARENESS ISSUES
Why We Need Sali
Due to factors such as population growth, economic development, and the increased consumption of meat, the demand for water has increased. Additionally, water pollution and climate change has tightened the supply of water. This pressure on water supply has caused many areas to experience water scarcity. In the United States, all states experience some level of water stress, especially those in the southwest region. The issue extends around the globe as well. According to UNICEF, four billion people experience water scarcity for at least one month each year, and by 2040, about 1 in 4 children worldwide will be living in areas of extremely high water stress. Every day, over 800 children die from drinking contaminated water. Current solutions that are being considered are advancing technology related to water conservation, improving practices related to farming, using less chemicals in farming, improving sewage systems, and building a better water distribution infrastructure.
