Water and weather, the delicate balance between evaporation and precipitation, is the primary cycle through which climate change is felt. As our climate changes, droughts, floods, melting glaciers, sea-level rise and storms intensify or alter, often with severe consequences.

Achieving Sustainable Development Goals from a Water Perspective

Journal of Water and Climate Change 1 June ; 10 2 : 3—4. Water and environmental management offers a multi-disciplinary understanding of water resources and environmental issues. Although the science of water management has experienced significant improvements over the past century, many issues still require the attention of the scientific community. Water bodies are ecological, culturally and economically important ecosystems which provide many valuable services to mankind. However, as climate change and human activities intensify e.

Water resources are essential for every development activity, not only in terms of available quantity but also in terms of quality. Population growth and urbanisation are increasing the number of users and uses of water, making water resources scarcer and more polluted. Changes in rainfall patterns threaten to worsen these effects in many areas.

Contributions of recycled wastewater to clean water and sanitation Sustainable Development Goals

The scope remains global and macroscopic, though there may be regional differences depending on the water sources available in a particular setting. Water systems in the realm of sustainable development may not literally include the use of water, but include systems where the use of water has traditionally been required. Sometimes, these purposes compete when resources are limited; for example, water needed to meet the demands of an increasingly urban population and those needs of rural agriculture. In order to decide if a water system is sustainable, various economical, social and ecological considerations must be considered.

The conventional freshwater sources now available in the region are barely sufficient to maintain the study area's current quality of life and economy. Attempting to meet future regional demands by simply increasing withdrawals of surface and ground water will result in further unsustainable development, with depletion of freshwater resources and widespread environmental degradation.


Здесь она снова замерла. Все выглядело совсем не так, как несколько минут. ТРАНСТЕКСТ выступал серым силуэтом в слабом сумеречном свете, проникавшем сквозь купол потолка. Все лампы наверху погасли. Не было видно даже кнопочных электронных панелей на дверях кабинетов.

Фонд электронных границ усилил свое влияние, доверие к Фонтейну в конгрессе резко упало, и, что еще хуже, агентство перестало быть анонимным. Внезапно домохозяйки штата Миннесота начали жаловаться компаниям Америка онлайн и Вундеркинд, что АНБ, возможно, читает их электронную почту, - хотя агентству, конечно, не было дела до рецептов приготовления сладкого картофеля. Провал Стратмора дорого стоил агентству, и Мидж чувствовала свою вину - не потому, что могла бы предвидеть неудачу коммандера, а потому, что эти действия были предприняты за спиной директора Фонтейна, а Мидж платили именно за то, чтобы она эту спину прикрывала.
