Presentation of United Nations World Water Development Report 2018 – 10th April 2018, Almaty, Kazakhstan.

One of the key goals of sustainable development is to protect, restore, and promote sustainable use of natural ecosystems. Growing population and the resulting demand for clean water are the reason why conflicts, droughts and floods, crop failures, economic decline and a number of other problems occur. According to the UN estimates, consumer demand for water resources will grow annually for 1%, thus aggravating social, economic and environmental problems. In addition to water scarcity, we are now facing a tendency of water quality decline due to its widespread contamination by chemical and biological pollutants. Increasing man-made impact leads to degraded water ecosystems, desertification, increased risk of natural disasters, and reduced forest and wetland areas. Sustainability of natural ecosystems serves as a basis of key processes in the water cycle: evaporation, formation of precipitation and surface flow, accumulation of ground water, and so forth. Up-to-date natural solutions being an effective tool of water resources management are aimed primarily at ecosystem preservation and restoration. Continue reading
