Fünf Milliarden könnten bis 2050 Mühe mit Wasserversorgung haben: UN

October 6, 2021 - Über fünf Milliarden könnten bis 2050 Schwierigkeiten mit Wassserversorgung haben, warnen die Vereinten Nationen. Der Bericht "The State of Climate Services 2021: Water" wurde nur wenige Wochen vor dem COP26 Gipfel veröffentlicht.

Already in 2018, 3.6 billion people had inadequate access to water for at least one month per year, according to a new report from the UN’s World Meteorological Organisation.

The WMO said that over the last 20 years, the levels of water stored on land – on the surface, in the subsurface, in snow and ice – had dropped at a rate of one centimetre per year.

The agency said there were major ramifications for water security, as only 0.5 percent of water on Earth is useable and available fresh water.
