The challenge

Every year, millions of people, mostly children, die from diseases caused by insufficient water supply,  and sanitation. It is estimated that by 2050, one-fourth of the world's population will probably live in countries. where there will be severe and frequent reductions in water.

 Between 1990 and 2009, 2.5 billion people have access to better drinking water, but still 663 million people are deprived. Between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of  the population using a better source of drinking water increased from 76% to 91%. However, every day  about 1,000 children die of diarrhea associated with water and hygiene, while these diseases are easily Can be  avoided.

Why is sustainable development goal  important?

Clean water is extremely important for survival and its effect can affect the health, food security and livelihood of families across the world. Although there is sufficient amount of fresh water for our regular clean water supply

 On our earth, due to wrong economic thinking and weak infrastructure, there may be disparity in the distribution of water supply.

 Drought hits some of the poorest countries of the world, which leads to further deterioration of starvation and malnutrition. 70% of the total deaths due to natural calamities are due to floods and other disasters related to water.

 Reliable energy, economic growth, capable infrastructure to cope with the disaster, sustainable industrialization, consumption and production and food security, everyone has an in-depth relationship   with sustainable supply of clean water.

 Hydroelectricity is one of the most important and widely used sources of energy, and by 2011,it has a 16% share in total power generation worldwide.

What is the solution?

The sustainable development goals have convinced the international community that it should expand international cooperation and programs on activities related to water and sanitation and support local communities for improving water and hygiene management. Through the sustainable development goal 6, the countries of the world have resolved that in the next 15 years, safe drinking water and adequate sanitation and sanitation facilities will be made accessible to everyone, everywhere.

India and its target of The sustainable Development Goal  6

The overall ratio of households accessing better water sources in India was 68% in 1992-93 which increased to 90.6% in 2011-12. However, in 2012, 59% of rural households and 8% of the urban households did not have access to better sanitation facilities.

Improvement in cleanliness is a major priority of the Government and in this direction,Govt  has initiated several major programs in which clean Bharat Abhiyan, National Rural Drinking Water Program and Namami Ganges Program for Ganga Conservation.
