The BBC is currently staging a week-long event called "The Water Debate".
On the debate's homepage you can find out about some of the world's water-related problems... and more positively a few of the potential solutions!
In order to get you started the BBC's ace environment correspondent Alex Kirby has written an excellent introduction to the role of water in international health, food security, politics + business...
In particular, Alex emphasises the need to use finite water resources wisely, equitably + sustainably.
If you would like to find out more about the importance of improving access to clean water + better sanitation Earth-Info.Net recommends that you visit Water Aid's website.
If you wish, you can donate 10 cents to Water Aid (courtesy of Aquaplastics) by clicking here, or alternatively donate a regular / fixed amount by clicking here.
