When completing my water diary, I realised that my intake of water is significantly smaller than the average person around the world. Yes, it is crucial to drink water on a daily basis, but water has no absolute flavor. And when focusing on one of specialisations, Iran and their water consumption, we can how, “At present, Iran uses 83% of its total renewable fresh-water resources, whereas international norms suggest a ceiling of 40% to ensure environment sustainability and to meet the rising demand of a growing population.” Information like this shows how countries are using sustainable practices to propel forward in the right direction. Which is slowing the affects of climate change.
