Water

"Water will be more important than oil this century,"
- Boutros Boutros Ghali former UN Secretary General.

3.575 million deaths per year worldwide are from water related diseases.

In 2008, 884 million people did not have access to safe drinking water and 1.1 billion people did not have access to toilets or latrines.

In Northern Ireland we take both the supply and quality of water for granted. It may seem that we have more than enough water but we each use on average 150 litres per day and demand is rising. If you had to buy this water daily from the supermarket, you would need to fill your trolley with 75 individual 2-litre bottles of water.
