Cinco mil millones podrían tener dificultad para acceder al agua en 2050: ONU

October 6, 2021 - Más de cinco mil millones de personas podrían tener dificultades para acceder al agua en 2050, advierte la ONU. El informe "Estado de los Servicios Climáticos 2021: Agua" se publica a solo semanas de la cumbre COP26.

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.
