The World is in Crisis!
What if you could STOP Floods, Droughts, & Poverty

Ending Poverty Worldwide

Poverty: Few Comforts in Life

The livelihoods of more than 1 billion people in some 100 countries are threatened by desertification. Nearly 1billion of the poorest and most marginalized people, who live in the most vulnerable areas, may be the most severely affected by desertification.  Their problems are only getting worse. The total drylands population is 2.1 billion.  One in three people on the planet are living in the drylands today.

Clean Water is disappearing at an alarming rate and the stress is rising

Dry, arid climates create water scarcity. Water scarcity, the gap between its demand and supply, is highest in the drylands. For basic well-being, each person requires a minimum of 2,000 cubic meters of water per year. Drylands people have access to 1,300 cubic meters only, and their sources are decreasing rapidly.  Right now, water scarcity affects between 1-2 billion people, most of them in the drylands. Under the climate change scenario, nearly half of the world's population in 2030 will be living in areas of high water stress. In some arid and semi-arid areas, it is predicted to displace up to between 24 million and 700 million people.

END POVERTY NOW!

An astounding 795 Million people go to sleep hungry every day.  That’s one out of nine people in the planet. Finally there are changes taking place to help ensure that all the people of the world will be taken care of and we want you to be a part of it.

In 2015, world leaders agreed to implement 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.

 

"Eradicating poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice and the key to unlocking an enormous human potential. Still, nearly half of the world’s population lives in poverty, and lack of food and clean water is killing thousands every single day of the year. Together, we can feed the hungry, wipe out disease and give everyone in the world a chance to prosper and live a productive and rich life." 
– Bill Gates

Water Conservation is Everybody's problem 

It’s easy to understand that everyone plays a role in how much drinkable water there is in the US. The U.S. Geological Survey estimated that the average American used 88 gallons of water per day in 2010, the latest year it surveyed water use.

The United States uses 27,400 million gallons per day around the house, for preparing food, washing clothes, bathing, flushing toilets, and watering lawns.

The map below from the U.S. Geological Survey shows how that breaks down by state on a daily basis, which doesn't even include the water that goes into producing the energy, food, and products we use. (For example, it takes over a gallon of water to grow a single almond.)

According to The UN, one fifth of the world's population lives in an area where water is scarce, and another fourth of the world's people don't have access to water because countries lack the infrastructure to distribute it.

By 2030, nearly half of everyone in the world will be living in countries highly stressed for water, according to UN predictions. Bank of America Merrill Lynch reports that water scarcity is our biggest problem worldwide, and projects that climate change will only make it worse.

Ready access to water is not something everyone in the world can take for granted, and Americans may not be able to hold on much longer.

CREATING JOBS GLOBALLY & ECONOMIC GROWTH

Some cities around the globe are taking some huge steps in helping to cope with rising sea levels.  Miami, New Orleans, New York, Dhaka, Lagos and Ho Chi Minh City have all sought the expertise of Dutch engineering firms in the past decade to grasp their knowledge and expertise of living with water. And the Dutch are making big bucks!  Foreign sales of water-related engineering and consulting accounted for 2 percent of their total exports in 2016, or almost $10 billion. (For scale, Miami-Dade County’s entire budget is about $7 billion.)

Most of The Netherlands sits well below sea level, and its 16 million inhabitants have been perfecting the art of reclaiming land from the sea since the Middle Ages.

The Union of Concerned Scientists predicts that by 2045, South Florida is going to be dealing with more than 380 tidal flooding incidents a year. Hurricanes will be cataclysmically stronger. Rainy seasons may well be shorter and more intense.

If it is to survive, Florida is going to need a way of keeping salty tidal water from ruining homes and property. It’s going to need a much cheaper method of elevating properties out of the floodplain (It currently costs $100,000 per modest single family home.)
