3.en.62 “Water for the cities” 2011 theme on Water day

Water Day was celebrated last Tuesday,  the 22nd of March. In English , we are  watching a film set in one of the biggest cities in the world, Mumbai. Improving  sanitation facilities and  water supply are some of the challenges that urban development faces. In the film you could catch a glance of what living conditions and sanitation services are like in the slums of Mumbai. Watch the video and listen to the message by the UN Deputy Secretary-General. Then, answer the questions and complete the gaps with the missing information.

Every month _____________ (1)million people move to cities of the developing World

By the year 2030 the urban population will have ________ (2)from what it was at the beginning of this century.

    The water in the Earth is 71%, but only 2,5% it’s fresh water. Also 1% of the fresh water is usable for drinking.
    The rest is ice, snow or ground water.
    For that many people haven’t got water. One of six people hasn’t got access to drinking water.
    We can help reducing the consume of water. The DOW company turn water of undrinkable to drinkable in some points of the world like Haiti.
    This corporation expect that in two decades 60% of the people will be urban dwellers.

    This video explains the conflicts that there are water shortages in some cities.
    Worldwide 71% of salt water and only 2.5% of water is freshwater and only 1% can be used for drinking water.
    The 1.6 does not have access to drinking water. Businesses raise the price of water and the poorest people fly because they can not afford such a high price for a product as basic survival.

  11. Love Says:

    Amog the 71% of the water that are in the Eart, but only 2,5% it’s fresh water. Ony the 1% is able to drink it.
    The rest is ice, snow or ground water.
    We have to reduce the consume of water we use. Some companies like DOW company turn undrinkable water to drinkable.
