Water - Essential for Life - DEG KFW Cooperation with Developing Countries

Author
KFW AND DEG
Description

Water is a fundamental element of life. If there is too little of it or – in the case of floods – far too much, if the supply is erratic or if it is contaminated with toxic substances, then it affects all areas of life. Today, more than 50 nations suffer from water stress. Without decisive action this number will increase still further. In the worst case, 30 years from now nearly half the world’s population will be living in countries suffering from a chronic lack of water. One of the most important tasks in the future is therefore to manage the competing demands, and using limited water supplies more efficiently while at the same time protecting them.
