One in three children in the world exposed to water scarcity

One in every three children around the world lives in areas with high or very high water scarcity, a situation that could be worsened due to climate change, warns a report released by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), this Monday.

The report also highlights that the combination of challenges caused by the reduced availability of the drink and inadequate drinking water and sanitation services increases the risks for children.

The document, cited by Lusa, also highlights the threat to children as a result of water vulnerability, one of the ways in which the impacts of climate change manifest themselves.
