Sustainable Water Development

Last Sunday, the 22nd of March was the World Water day 2014, something we at Sustainable Disposables Trading of course celebrated.
In 1993, the United Nations General Assembly instigated the first World Water Day  on the 22nd of March. A day to make a difference for the members of the global population who suffer from water related issues. It is a day to celebrate, change and prepare new ways of managing water for the future.
Every year the World Water Day is shining a light on a different issue. This year the focus was on the correlation between Water and Energy.
Water and energy are closely interlinked and interdependent. Energy generation requires water resources especially for hydroelectric, nuclear and thermal energy sources. About 8% of the global energy generation is used for pumping, treating and transporting water to various consumers. This year the World Water Day also aimed to facilitate the development of policies and crosscutting framework to bridge ministries and sectors leading the way to energy security and sustainable water use in a green economy. Particular attention was paid to identifying best practices that can make a water-and-energy efficient “Green Industry” a reality.
Next year the theme for the World Water Day will be “Water and Sustainable Development” and how water links to all areas we need to consider when creating the future we want.
