Water scarcity affects most people in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, complicating efforts to grow crops and raise livestock. @UNFAO works with partners to build and repair cisterns to collect rainwater – an investment that means big savings for poor families unable to afford tankered water. FAO is building grey wastewater treatment units that recycle water and provide supplementary irrigation for rangeland and home gardens. ©FAO / 📷: Marco Longari

In case you want to swim in the story of this picture... I ran from the park where it was getting uncomfortable to sit in the midst of a precipitation of water, got a cup of coffee, which according to foodandwaterwatch.org takes around 140 litres of water to make taking into account the growing, processing, transporting..., with oat milk which requires a fraction of the water to produce compared to dairy milk (oats don't drink and pollute as much as 🐄), they said they were low on cups but I offered to use my jar to save using a disposable cup which requires more water to manufacture, and now I'm going to attempt reading about the productive capacity of water.
Water is precious in many ways 🦅 {look up "virtual water" and Hoekstra and Chapagain's papers if you're interested in the water necessary at each production stage of everything we use and consume 🌊} #fuelledbycoffee #deathbydissertation #vegan #zerowaste #thinkLOGLO #🏊🏽‍♀️ #🏃🏼‍♀️#☠️

As of 2013, the livestock sector globally produced 285 million tons of meat, with Americans averaging 270 lbs of meat consumption a year. Maintaining livestock production to satisfy the world’s demand is highly resource-intensive, using one-third of the world’s fresh water. Simply growing the feed for the livestock consumes 56% of water in the U.S. – resulting in 1,799 gallons to produce one pound of beef. Additionally, it’s estimated that the associated greenhouse gas emissions accounts for 14.5% of the global anthropogenic GHG emissions. Consuming meat, poultry, and dairy products isn’t innately unsustainable, but when our demand leads to deforestation, and air & water pollution, we need to adopt more sustainable eating habits and vary our sources of protein. Cutting back on meat consumption and buying local are two easy ways to lower emissions and maintain our fresh water supply.

Some of our (ahem) "leaders" could certainly use this book, but thankfully many are already invoking its spirit (we see you, CA, NY, and WA: 😘). Our world is facing unsustainable global trends, from #climatechange and #waterscarcity to energy insecurity, unfair labor practices, and growing #inequality. Tackling these crises effectively requires a new form of #leadership: a collective one. But, in a world of many silos, how do we get people to work together toward a common goal? In THE ART OF LEADING COLLECTIVELY, Petra Kuenkel offers many examples of #collective leadership efforts involving corporate, public, and nonprofit sectors around the world, and is for anyone seeking solutions to social and sustainability challenges.

Every time I get home grumpy because my feathers are soaking wet, I try to remember that close to where I come from, people pray for rain. So #rainonme and #begrateful #siredmond #waterscarcity

It's raining, and all of this rainwater is going to waste. I attended a workshop a few weeks ago where someone spoke about the wonders of rainwater harvesting. I've read that if everyone did it, we wouldn't have any water problems.
Maybe we would have fewer health problems too, because we wouldn't be using water extracted from tens or hundreds of feed below the ground, mixed with God knows what. The city is going to flood or at the very least, stagnate, if this keeps up a while longer. Everywhere I go, people are talking about​ water and the water shortage in Chennai. Everyone is buying water. Everyone is worrying about water. But we're letting all this water go to waste. We're closing up the ground, paving over every inch of open space we find, and stopping all of this water from at least naturally going back into the ground. Why? Really, why?
See the house in front? It was built less than five years ago, replacing a small house on a large open plot of land covered with trees. They paved it over inch for inch and cut down most of the trees. It's not because they didn't know better. I know this for a fact.
Everywhere I look, it's the same story. No water. Water everywhere. Water shortage problems. Water stagnation problems. Water contamination problems. What are we doing?

We have been fighting wars over the most valuable resource on the planet since thousands of years B.C. We speak today of water wars as if they are a new development in history. But as the most valuable natural resource on earth, water has long been the focus of conflict over territory, supply, and equitable distribution for all its essential purpose as source of sustainability and survival.

Ted Ed (Mia Nacamulli): Water is refreshing, hydrating, and invaluable to your survival. But clean water remains a precious and often scarce commodity – there are nearly 800 million people who still don’t have regular access to it. Why is that? And how can you tell whether the water you have access is drinkable? See the full version video on bio's link.
