Protection of water resources
The current global water crisis is not addressed appropriate. Limited access to water and upcoming water scarcity is widely not addressed through proper implementation of water management measures (e.g. IWM), but through installing larger and energy intensive water distribution systems. Regional and global efforts on sustainable water management put little considerations in watershed management that is – due to its holistic manner – on local level the only way to solve water scarcity, limited access to water and leading to increasing food production and livelihood.
