1 Access to safe drinking water on Tue Feb 02, 2010 4:08 pm

The delegate of Australia thinks that many people dont have access to safe drinking water due to climate change and pollution. There is not many sources of 100% fresh water in the world. This is because it is altered by acid rain plus since there is no access to safe drinking water in poor countries the poor decide to drink water from rivers. The rivers contain water born diseases that kill many people. Do you agree with the delegate of Australia when the delegate states that global warming also causes problems with water.

The delegate is very right when the delegate suggests that global warming contributes to water problems. It is one of the many causes. Majority water we have in the world are not consumable because of the very nature of our Earth that minerals and many other substances are mixed into the water sources at large (not just because of acid rain, although acid rain does further reduce the amount of fresh water we have). Also, global warming causes glaciers (where most of the fresh water supply we have is locked up in) to melt into the oceans and become part of the general water sources that cannot be directly consumed. Oh no!

Let's hear from other delegates on other causes of the problems and SOLUTIONS!!
Very Happy

The Delegate of Pakistan found that the mortality rate for children under-five in Pakistan is 101 deaths per 1000 children. Water and sanitation related diseases are responsible for 60% of the total number of child mortality cases in Pakistan. The access to safe drinking water in the more developed areas is around 30% and in the rural areas, especially bordering Afghanistan, the access to clean drinking water is much, much lower.

The water these people drink often cause illness and diseases to spread throughout the proximity, they have the sufficient medical needs to cure these water-borne illnesses, but the problem is (throughout the world) the cost is much to high above what these people can afford, leading to more deaths. The group Unilever is already paying for 82% of the water filtration systems but these are just not enough. The cost of medical treatment for water-borne disease should be lowered.

greedy, greedy people..

Yes, this is true. Afghanistan is officially the worst place for a child to be born and is landlocked. Families in afghanistan live on less than 1 US dollar a day! Shocked

5 The access to safe drinking water_by ENV--Peru on Fri Feb 26, 2010 11:42 am

ENV--Peru thinks that Peru is in a big danger because the water is polluted so severely due to the mining and also by decreasing of water by glaciers moving away from Peru because water streams got bigger and water level rises due to the melted glaciers.

I also firmly believe that there are many things that United Nations can do for Peru. For example, to stop diseases spreading our around Peru and killing so many people, U.N. can supply some of their medical cares for Peru.

Peru is in a level of poverty and we all assume that that is why Peru can not even afford this most basic fundamental right for Peruvian people.

Let's see how we can help them our to solve this problem for Peru!!! lol!
