Keep reading for a snippet from Reading 1: Why Water Matters 

The UN suggests that each person requires 5-13 gallons of water a day to ensure their basic needs for drinking, cooking and cleaning.

“Civilizations have thrived or collapsed depending on their access to and control of water. Despite this reality, many of us remain unaware of how much our lives depend on this remarkable substance. It is relatively easy to see obvious uses such as drinking, bathing, and cleaning, but there are so many ways in which water is “hidden” from view: food production, electricity generation, and manufacturing among others. In much of the world, access to reliable and clean water remains daily hard work. The current water struggles that millions of people endure are expected to spread as population growth, mounting consumption, and climate change combine into a global water crisis. These challenges are prompting people around the globe to promote forward-thinking approaches to water that are aligned with sustainability and the ecological systems of the Earth.”
