THE WORLD AND WATER-RELATED ISSUES

In the world 3 billion 600 million people do not have access to a safe sewage system. This is reported by NIAT "Khovar" with reference to information from the official website of the United Nations.

2 billion people do not have access to clean drinking water.

The number of people who does not have access to water in cities is increasing. Experts estimate that the population of the world's cities without access to water will increase from 930 million in 2016 to 1.7 - 2.4 billion in 2050.

As of March 2023, 2 billion people in the world have no access to clean drinking water at all.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report on Oceans and the Cryosphere (2019), a third of the world's glaciers could disappear by the end of this century.

Over the past five decades, clean water availability per capita has declined 2.5 times globally and four times in the Central Asian region.

The Founder of peace and national unity - Leader of the nation, the President of the Republic of Tajikistan, Honorable Emomali Rahmon, at the Second High Level International Conference on the International Decade of Action "Water for Sustainable Development, 2018-2028" held in Dushanbe in 2022, emphasized that about 2 billion people in the world do not have access to safe drinking water networks.

According to sayings of Leader of the nation, Honorable Emomali Rahmon, the world community has not yet taken the necessary measures to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

"Naturally, during this period, all countries of the world have concentrated all means and capabilities to fight this crisis," the Head of State noted. - But we should not forget that the water problem, because of its special importance, should always remain a priority".

According to experts' estimates, in 2050 the world population is more likely to reach 9 billion people, which, of course, is the reason for a manifold increase in demand for water.

At the same time, the President of the Republic of Tajikistan, Honorable Emomali Rahmon, emphasized that the common efforts have not yet brought the desired effect, the following indicators testify to this:

- more than 3.5 billion people do not enjoy the necessary sanitation and almost 2.3 billion do not have proper hygienic conditions;

- about half a million people die every year from water-related infectious diseases.

"In this regard, it can be said that the process of actual fulfillment of the set goals and objectives on access to drinking water and sanitation is not at the proper level," the head of state said.
