Sustainable development and water
Imagine if we had asked people 100 years ago, what they thought will occur during the next century, in terms of demography, economic growth, agriculture, water and the environment. The term environment would not be understood. The nearest reference identified as fire, earth, air and water (Aristotle). 100-year later words such as environment as sustainable development are some of the most-used words, the twentieth aggregate global gross domestic product (GDP) multiplied 19 times (IMF 2000).
A combination of demographic, technological, and economic trends has accelerated the ability of humans to modify their built and natural habitats. Growth in the world’s commercial sectors—including agriculture—and urban centre is changing the landscapes of our Earth and multiplying the flow of goods and services derived from water and other natural resources.
A more significant gap between rich and poor
But the benefits have not been shared by everyone. Differences between the rich and the poor have been and remind, comprehensive and are increasing (IMF 2000). In the north, for example, overeating is estimated to 1.5 billion persons, aged 20 years and above, (Beddington 2012 ). We take for granted safe water at any time and place. However, access to safe water is still a dream for about 900 million people and more than 2.5 billion lack access to safe sanitation.
Lack of clean water
The needs for urban water and rural water supply are tremendous. According to the World Health Organization and the United Nations, the inner city population in developing countries without access to safe drinking water approximately 240 million people. In rural areas in developing countries, roughly 980 million people, for a total of 1,200 million people without access to safe drinking water. A decade later (1990 – 2000), the total population in developing countries requiring safe drinking water rose to more than 2000 million people.
It’s time for a new and different way of thinking. Recycle, reduce waste and complete loss (between one-third and one-half 1/3 of food produced on the farm is lost, wasted or converted(Lundqvist 2008; Lundqvist 2010; Gustavsson 2011 ). Not only applied to food and water similar concerning other commodities.
Humans are the most dangerous animal
Of Earths, all living creatures on humans are the only species with the capacity to reflect on their behaviour and change it as needed to achieve the goals of humanity. In harmony with the dynamics of natural resources, water and food essential for our health and economic and social well-being. A globally sustainable future is reachable in a world with incredible opportunities, nevertheless, also with limits and boundaries. The human can create unbelievable beauty, magnificent art, music and scientific knowledge. However, we can no longer ignore the truth that we are also the most dangerous animal.
