Description

Summary Water is the lifeblood of the planet, and the state of this resource affects all natural, social and economic systems. Water serves as the fundamental link between the climate system, human society and the environment.

Climate change is severely impacting the hydrological cycle and consequently, water management. This will in turn have significant effects on human development and security. Water is the primary medium through which climate change influences Earth’s ecosystem and thus the livelihood and well-being of societies. Higher temperatures and changes in extreme weather conditions are projected to affect availability and distribution of rainfall, snowmelt, river flows and groundwater, and further deteriorate water quality. Description The competition aims to encourage people across the world to record all aspects of water as the fundamental link between the climate system, human society and the environment, and also interesting and important issues relating to water and the vital role of water in everyday life. Water is a human right, and this competition is about inspiring people across the world to record all aspects that inspires others to preserve water, now and for future generations. From the small things such as turning off the tap when you brush your teeth, over bigger issues such as installing water-efficient plumbing in buildings, to global solutions that could solve the supply/demand gap by transitioning to a green economy. Show, in pictures, problems that climate change affect the water and solutions, which are important for the participants.
