70 percent of the earth’s surface is covered in water, but freshwater that can be used by living terrestrial species constitutes only 2.8 percent. In recent decades, their availability has been decreasing. We are talking about water access
The shortage of water is due to the increase in the world population, climate change, pollution, and domestic, industrial, and agricultural waste.
ACCESS TO WATER
In the last 50 years, the withdrawal of water has tripled, dramatically accentuating the differences in access to water resources
An African farmer, for example, has twenty liters a day compared to a real daily requirement of 50 liters. In developed countries, daily consumption exceeds one hundred liters
ITALY AND AFRICA
Italians use a quantity of water ten times higher than the real requirement. In poor countries, however, the high cost of supply and distribution technologies often hinders access to drinking water
Today it is estimated that one and a half billion people in the world do not have access to drinking water. According to the UN, in 2020, the water deficit affected 22 percent of the population involving 48 countries
For the control of access to water resources necessary for the survival of the populations in different areas of the world, water wars could arise
Much can be done to solve the world’s water problem. Like building water wells in Africa or, in general, adopting systems that allow the populations of the poorest countries in the world to have a safe source of water available.
Thanks to distance adoption, you too can contribute to solving this problem. To obtain drinking water, one often has to face a long journey, even 4-5 hours a day, with many dangers

I have read your article carefully and I agree with you very much. This has provided a great help for my thesis writing, and I will seriously improve it. However, I don’t know much about a certain place. Can you help me?
Hi, I’m glad you found this article helpful and read it carefully. It is a short article that serves as food for thought. I will take it up again later certainly delving into some aspects in more detail
