Water consumption worldwide has been increasing by about 1 per cent every year since the 1980s, and will continue an upward march till 2050, projects the United Nations. By then, the global water demand will be around 30 per cent above today’s levels. Already, over two billion people live in countries with high water stress, and about four billion experience severe water scarcity at least one month every year.
A similar disheartening scenario exists in the way the world is handling its waste. 80 per cent of global wastewater containing human waste and toxic industrial discharge remains untreated. At the same time, plastics are choking our waterbodies and aquatic life.
Evidence-based communication using data is the key to informing interventions for conserving and protecting our water and for managing our waste.
Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), South Asia’s leading think tanks on the politics of environment and development, invites you to join its Global Online Training Programme which focuses on: finding and understanding good data on water and waste; analysing and visualising it to graphically communicate impactful stories.
It will introduce popular analytical tools and offer insights into the larger stories to better understand numbers on water, waste, health and economy.
