Introduction to Water

Water is a fundamental and essential resource for all life on Earth. Its availability, quality, and sustainable management are crucial for the well-being of ecosystems and humans. As we delve into the basics of water together, it becomes evident that water is a finite resource, and its conservation is essential for a sustainable future.

Water is a Finite Resource 

Despite covering about 71% of the Earth’s surface, only a small fraction of water (around 3%) is freshwater, and much of that is inaccessible as it is stored in glaciers and polar ice caps. This makes freshwater a limited and finite resource.
