Importance of River water in our Nature
India is blessed with good network of Rivers but now these days many Indian Rivers are converted into toxic streams. Clean, accessible water for all is an essential part of the world we want to live in. Water scarcity, poor water quality and inadequate sanitation negatively impact food security, livelihood choices and educational opportunities for poor families across the world. Drought afflicts some of the world’s poorest countries, worsening hunger and malnutrition. Each day, nearly 1,000 children die due to preventable water and sanitation-related diarrhoeal diseases .Approximately 70 per cent of all water abstracted from rivers, lakes and aquifers is used for irrigation. Floods and other water-related disasters account for 70 per cent of all deaths related to natural disasters. More than 80 per cent of wastewater resulting from human activities is discharged into rivers or sea without any pollution removal.
