 Water for life

Water is essential for life.

Every living thing needs water in some form.

About 1.2 billion people, or 20% of the world's population do not have safe drinking water.

About 2 billion people in 80 countries live in areas with a chronic shortage of water.

Everyday over 25,000 people die as a result of using unclean water.

Why have things become so bad?

How can we have been so careless with our water supplies?

We have to understand about water itself.  What is useable?

A clean source of water.

Task 1

Where does our fresh clean water come from? 

Where is Earth's water located?
