Some parts of the world are facing problems of fresh water shortage and this has brought awareness about the seriousness of the problem among all the countries.
What should the government and individual do to solve the problem?
Write at least 250 words.
Fresh water shortage is a concerning issue now, and the countries experiencing the scarcity has become serious to get rid of the problem. Around 70 percent of the earth is covered with water while the sum of freshwater is too little. Thereby, the shortage is acute in some places and the government and individuals should take steps to solve the problem.
Mostly due to geographical advantage, some of the regions are enriched with fresh waters while many of the parts are devoid of it. But the little freshwater we have is getting reduced for several reasons and primarily for the unwise activities by the human beings. Currently the freshwater is being used to serve almost all the purposes including cooking, drinking, bathing, cleaning and people seem to be competing in spending the freshwater.
As a result, freshwater shortage in many of the regions is becoming acute and worsening the situations as well. But if the existing trend continues, the scarcity will hit the remaining parts soon and also will make survival for humans and other living beings tougher.
So, all the governments should be more serious about the issue and adopt immediate measures preventing freshwater shortage. It should be taken as a challenge by the governments to overcome. Besides, the countries could also instruct citizens not to use chemicals and pesticides excessively in farming food and other crops near the freshwater sources, and strict measures should be adopted against the violators.
In individual level, mass awareness is required. The awareness will help freshwater waste prevention. Individuals could also come forward to prevent the ongoing freshwater pollution. They also should be sensitized over the preservation of the freshwater.
