The importance of water care is a recurring theme and water saving campaigns tend to focus on people's everyday activities. However, industries account for approximately 92% of total consumption. More water goes into things than into human consumption. It shows the responsibility for water care rests mainly on the shoulders of the large corporations that run the industries mentioned above and others, not just on individuals' daily decisions.

Faced with the current climate scenario, developing countries should rethink how much they are doing to fight climate change, because, although they are not the most polluting nations in the world, they will be the most affected by it.

In the first days of September 2023, just over a dozen countries have experienced severe rainfall, causing human and material losses. At least one country on each continent was affected by flooding. It is common for this type of natural disaster to hit these places. However, it is unusual for it to happen at the same time.
