UN Report Warns Growing Number of People Face Water Scarcity [Video]

UN Report Warns Growing Number of People Face Water Scarcity

UN Report Warns , Growing Number of People , Face Water Scarcity. On March 21, the United Nations released a report warning that 26% of the world's population, approximately 2 billion people, lack access to safe drinking water. . According to NPR, the report comes on the eve of the U.N.'s first conference on the topic of water in over 45 years. . The U.N.'s World Water Development Report 2023 revealed that 46% of people lack access to basic sanitation globally, equal to about 3.6 billion people. . NPR reports that the U.N. has laid out a goal to ensure that all people in the world have access to clean water by 2030. According to Richard Connor, editor-in-chief of the report, meeting the goal will require somewhere between $600 billion and $1 trillion per year. . Connor said that with 70% of the world's water use going to agriculture, it becomes critical for irrigation to be more efficient. . According to the U.N.'s Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) report, as climate change continues, water scarcity is expected to increase. . Seasonal water scarcity will increase in regions where it is currently abundant — such as Central Africa, East Asia and parts of South America — and worsen in regions where water is already in short supply, such as the Middle East and the Sahara in Africa, World Water Development Report 2023, via NPR. An increase in intensity or frequency of droughts and 'heat extremes' can be expected in most regions as a direct result of climate change. The UNESCO report states that an average of 10% of the world's population already lives in an area with high or critical water stress.

Scientists Release Natural Predator of Invasive Weed in 'World First'

Scientists Release Natural Predator, of Invasive Weed in 'World First'. 'Newsweek' reports that scientists in Australia are looking to combat invasive water weeds by releasing an army of the plant's nemesis: weevils. The release is part of a cooperation between researchers at Australia's Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and Seqwater. Seqwater, one of Australia's largest water companies, agreed to the release of weevils to prevent the spread of the invasive cabomba plant. Seqwater, one of Australia's largest water companies, agreed to the release of weevils to prevent the spread of the invasive cabomba plant. It is a world first. There is no biocontrol program [for cabomba] happening in any other parts of the world, Kumaran Nagalingam, senior research scientist at CSIRO, via 'Newsweek'. Cabomba caroliniana, a fast-spreading weed introduced to Australia from South America in the 60s, can wreak havoc on native plants and animals. . It outcompetes all of our native plants that used to live in the lakes and it can affect animals as well because they don't like to live in such a dense plant material, David Roberts, Senior scientist with Seqwater, via 'Newsweek'. Cabomba grows up to 5cm [nearly 2 inches] a day, strangling native ecosystems, choking waterways and impacting native aquatic animal and plant populations, David Roberts, Senior scientist with Seqwater, via 'Newsweek'. According to 'Newsweek,' cabomba can also block inlets and piping, posing a threat to both boaters and swimmers who could get caught in its tendrils. Cabomba has quite a few natural enemies associated with it, but one thing that we have to make sure is that they are specific only to cabomba—it doesn't eat or double up on other native plants, Kumaran Nagalingam, senior research scientist at CSIRO, via 'Newsweek'.

Stoltenberg added that China represents a threat to not only national security, but "global security.".

The Chinese balloon over the United States confirms a pattern of Chinese behavior, where we see China over the last years has invested heavily in new military capabilities, including different types of surveillance and intelligence platforms, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO General Secretary, via Fox News. And we’ve also seen increased Chinese intelligence activities in Europe — again, different platforms. They use satellites, they use cyber, and, as we’ve seen over the United States, also balloons, Jens Stoltenberg, NATO General Secretary, via Fox News. Since shooting down a surveillance balloon off the coast of South Carolina, U.S.-China relations have soured, with Beijing rejecting a request to speak with Washington. Again, it demonstrates why for the Department of Defense that China remains the pacing challenge and something that will continue to stay focused on, Air Force Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder, Pentagon press secretary, via Fox News
