Water is life. Water is also quality of life. It is cleanliness, dignity and health. How we find it, store it, clean it and use it are some of South Africa’s most urgent environmental and societal challenges. National Water Week, is about taking action to tackle the water crisis. Today, there are over 663 million people living without a safe water supply close to home, spending countless hours queuing or trekking to distant sources, and coping with the health impacts of using contaminated water. The Sustainable Development Goals, launched in 2015, include a target to ensure everyone has access to safe water by 2030, making water a key issue in the fight to eradicate extreme poverty.
