UN World Water Day 2014

 

In her annual World Water Day message, the Director General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, took the time to highlight that, “Water is fundamental to life and it is the common denominator of all sustainable development challenges and that we need water to produce food and also to produce energy”.

We were also reminded that on this World Water Day 2014 that, “We need to better understand the complex interactions between resources that are closely interlinked, such as water, food and energy and we must acknowledge that it is impossible to manage these resources sustainably if we treat them in isolation as each mode of energy production has implications for the quantity and quality of water available”, she continued.

 

According to Irina Bokova, “It is essential that the choices made in one sector have repercussions on the other, for better and for worse. For example, the World Water Development Report confirms, that people who lack electricity are also those who lack water. This is no coincidence as water is required to produce energy, and energy is required to sanitize and convey water as both are essential to human wellbeing and sustainable development”.
