UN Warns Over 5 Billion People Could Struggle to Access Water by 2050
More than five billion people could have difficulty accessing water in 2050, the United Nations warned Tuesday, urging leaders to seize the initiative at the COP26 summit.
Already in 2018, 3.6 billion people had inadequate access to water for at least one month per year, said a new report from the UN’s World Meteorological Organization.
“We need to wake up to the looming water crisis,” said WMO chief Petteri Taalas.
