A sore sight - With extreme heat wave conditions prevalent across Telangana state, many lakes and ponds have dried up like this Lotus Pond in Jubilee Hills in Hyderabad presenting a sorry sight with disappearance of different species of birds which were regular visitors of the area.

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.

What do you see when you reflect on the world’s #watersecurity? These villagers in #Ghana and millions like them may not be able to access potable #water safely in their communities. 663 million people worldwide still lack access to safe drinking water. At least 1.8 billion people globally use a source of drinking water that does not meet the @WHO’s guidelines for drinking water quality. Water scarcity affects more than 40 percent of the global population and is projected to rise. Photo: Arne Hoel/World Bank

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.

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

Saudi Arabia's entry from #LDB16 - .
Water Machine was a giant gumball machine, of the kind familiar from newsagents and corner shops, which distributed globes of water if you inserted the right money. Water is an increasingly scarce resource the world over, but there are few places that this fact is felt as keenly as Saudi Arabia. Primarily desert, the country relies on desalinisation plants to reclaim fresh water from the sea, an expensive and energy-hungry process. Sisters Noura and Basma Bouzo have drawn on this situation in their installation to highlight the need for a global structural change towards sustainable use of resources.

My latest for @dawn_dot_com on #climatesmartagriculture & how its making a breakthrough in #pakistan. This time the government is playing an important role in geling #renewable tech. with #agriculture and that is boosting the sector in areas where it wasnt possible previously. It is infact an #adaptation measure to #climatechange

In the villages there is scarcity of water and only a few have small solar panels to carry forward a light bulb. The kids are so many and they smile happy. I wonder what will be their future, and I hope something settles in those remote areas, water and electricity would make a big difference . June 2017 Congo

nei villaggi c'è scarsità di acqua e solo pochi hanno piccoli pannelli solari per mandare avanti una lampadina. i bambini sono tanti e ci sorridono felici mi chiedo cosa sarà del loro futuro, e spero che qualcosa si aggiusti in quelle zone remote, acqua ed elettricità farebbero una grande differenza.

Tree Planting in celebration of World Day to Combat Desertification and Drought. I spend a lovely afternoon at Jacobs Well with a group of mentally disabled children, staff members and our tree sponsor. Jacobs Well is a #Place of Safety for mentally handicapped children, the only one of its kind serving the people of #Olievenhoutbosch, #Iterileng and #Mooiplaats Spruit. They have embarked on a journey at their new premises in Doornrandjie, to remove all invasive plants and to replace this with indigenous vegetation and trees. A big thank you to Danie van Eden from Wild Route for his valuable input on the day and a very generous sponsorship of 15 beautiful Combretum erythrophyllum trees to replace Australian Syringa. The prolific growth of Syringa at the expense of the native flora and fauna negatively affected the preservation of biodiversity and reduced stream flow near the river. I am grateful to Miss Earth SA for the opportunity and platform to be part of Jacobs Well’s journey to recover this beautiful piece of land for the benefit of the community it serves. Every action counts.

This is a picture of the dried river bed in #TamilNadu's paddy belt near the #KaveriDelta. This is #Kollidam river which is a distributory of the River Kaveri a major South Indian lifeline over which many interstate and interregion agitation happens.

Why is there a water shortage in the world? 🌏85% of the world population lives in the driest half of the planet. 🚫🌧🚫.....😩 Access to potable drinking water affects every continent and around 2.8 billion people around the world at least one month out of every year. 👎🏽More than 1.2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water. Water scarcity involves water shortage, water stress or deficits, and water crisis. ... economic water scarcity. 👎🏽In addition, almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation. 👎🏽6 to 8 million people die annually from the consequences of disasters and water-related diseases. #Firstearth #GreenWorldVision #water #accesstodrinkingwater #waterscarcity #watershortage #waterstress #potablewater #activism #conservation #waterconservation #sanitationforall #poorsanitation #world #worldcrisis

#Honduras ranked #3 on the list of countries most affected by #climatechange. #Farmers are at the front lines—battling #waterscarcity, low yields, and a fungus that has decimated coffee crops. Once only a coffee farmer, Doña Joselinda Manueles worked to diversify her production. With the help of a #solar pump and drip irrigation system, rows of tomatoes, lettuces, and green beans now populate her farm—producing enough to feed her family and sell surplus to neighbors. As climate change continues to put pressure on Honduras’s resources, water-smart technology and diversification of crops will become a vital instrument for small farmers’ success. #tech4good #globaldev #entrepreneur

#WaterWednesday #Colombia is awash with #waterresources but is facing economic #waterscarcity, which is when demand for water outstrips the inadequate capacity caused by insufficient infrastructure. The location of much of these resources does not match up with the majority of the population. Extensive #pollution from industrial and agricultural activities and lack of sewage treatment in some areas curbs the amount of water that is actually usable, compounding the unequal distribution and straining the Magdalena and Cauca River basins.
