Focus of the Year 2022
This year’s focus is on groundwater, which is a finite resource that many nations are overusing. Although groundwater is drawn for domestic and industrial purposes, it is also essential for ecosystem health.
“We must protect them from overexploitation abstracting more water than is recharged by rain and snow and the pollution that currently haunts them since it can lead to the depletion of this resource, extra-costs of processing it, and sometimes even preventing its use,” the UN says on its website.
The United Nations has also urged individuals to make a 60-second video detailing how groundwater affects their lives and what else they can do to safeguard it.
What is the Significance of Groundwater?
The world’s largest source of fresh and drinkable water is groundwater. In several places of the world when surface water resources are insufficient, groundwater meets household, agricultural, and industrial water needs.
Excessive usage of groundwater, on the other hand, is depleting its levels, which will become a big issue in the coming years.
