Imminet Water Crisis

Wall Street Journal: "The world is facing an imminent risk of a global water crisis, a United Nations agency warned in a report that casts a dim view of government cooperation on the issue.

"Around two billion people, roughly 26% of the world population, don’t have access to safe drinking water, according to a United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization report published Wednesday. An additional 3.6 billion people, or 46%, lack access to safely managed sanitation, it said.

“'There is an urgent need to establish strong international mechanisms to prevent the global water crisis from spiraling out of control,' Unesco Director-General Audrey Azoulay said in the report, which is part of the U.N.’s Water Conference 2023 in New York City this week."
