Water Crisis

There are 1.1 billion people, or 18 per cent of the world's population, who lack access to safe drinking water. About 2.6 billion people, or 42 per cent of the total, lack access to basic sanitation (WHO/UNICEF).

Water is a basic nutrient of the human body and is critical to human life.

Of all the water in the world, only 3% is fresh and less than a third of 1% is even available to humans! The rest, frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps, or deep within the earth is beyond our reach. In other words, if the entire worlds water were poured into a liter-sized bottle of Evian, the quantity humans could drink would fill half a teaspoon. The rest of it is too brackish, too dirty, too hard to reach, or undrinkable seawater.

The search for drinkable water is as dire as the oil crisis. One of the worlds most abundant natural resources is quickly becoming a precious and scarce commodity.

In many regions of the world, fresh water, both groundwater and surface water, is being used faster than it can be replaced. West Asia faces the greatest threat. Over 90 per cent of the region's population is experiencing severe water stress. But the problem is not confined to the developing world. In the United States, 400 million cubic meters of groundwater is being removed from aquifers annually in Arizona; about double the amount being replaced by recharge from rainfall. Water supplies are falling while the demand is dramatically growing at an unsustainable rate. Over the next 20 years, the average supply of water worldwide per person is expected to drop by a third. By the middle of this century, seven billion people in 60 countries may be faced with water scarcity (at least 2 billion in 48 countries will face such a harsh reality.

  • 3.5 million people die each year from water-related disease.
  • 43% of water-related deaths are due to diarrhea.
  • 84% of water-related deaths are in children ages 0 14.
  • 98% of water-related deaths occur in the developing world.
  • 884 million people, lack access to safe water supplies, approximately one in eight people.
  • Water consumption has almost doubled in the last 50 years. A child born in the developed world consumes 30 to 50 times the water resources of one in the developing world.
  • People already use over half the worlds accessible freshwater, and may use nearly three-quarters by 2025

Atmospheric Water Generator technology is a critical solution to provide abundant quantities of quality drinking water in appropriate climatic zones.

Retrieving moisture from the air is practical, accessible, readily available and virtually unlimited in supply for creating safe, secure, potable water that meets or surpasses the highest international standards for water quality. As this crisis looms governments have a fiduciary duty to provide a source of potable water to their citizens. It seems inevitable that energy subsidies for potable water production will be offered to companies utilizing atmospheric water technology. It is a sustainable
resource that is growing as global warming impacts
evaporation levels.
