Nevada (US): Hindus want the worldwide risk of water insecurity to be taken seriously.
According to a recent study, water threats include scarcity and pollution and about 3.4 billion people worldwide fall under the most severe threat category. Areas of the world inhabited by about 80 percent of world population lack secure fresh water supply. Prospect of poorer nations seemed even more depressing.
Renowned Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, said that world governments and international organizations should come up with better water management strategies. Growing human population and climate changes reportedly would further deteriorate the water supply situation.
Moreover, integrated water management should be the focus of governments where needs of all users should be considered, Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, added. (ANI)
