World Water Day Celebrated – Rainwater Harvesting Tanks
With nearly 750 million people throughout the world having no access to clean drinking water or improved sanitation, World Water Day, which took place on Sunday 22nd March, raised awareness that a secure water world is emerging as a top human development priority in the post-2015 Development Agenda. The theme of water and sustainable development emphasises how water is an essential asset to all aspects of life, including livelihood, health, economy and environment.
Ensuring access to water will ensure progressive efforts to reduce poverty, build peace and give practical transformative effect to sustainable development goals, according to Aid Forum.
As well as the 750 million people with no access to clean water, 2.5 billion people have no access to adequate sanitation. 500,000 children die each year from diarrhoea caused by unsafe water and poor sanitation and women tally up over 200 million hours across the world each day collecting water, time which could be better spent on income-generating jobs or attending school.
Developing countries also face many of the same problems over water quality and supply including; poor access to water supply, poor water resource management and poor water productivity in the agricultural sector. The last factor is something that Eduramaxx is striving to help farmers to improve and that is with the help of dedicated rainwater harvesting solutions.
Enduramaxx rainwater tanks capture roof rainwater run-off. Large volume horizontal and vertical tanks store rainwater safely due to a very rugged single-piece mould of UV-stabilised polyethylene. To find out more about rainwater tanks and the extended range of Enduramaxx tanks, get in touch now.
