The vast majority of global water resources belong to seawater and salt water that cannot be used by humans (97.5%), and nearly 70% of fresh water belongs to icebergs or permafrost, 30% belongs to groundwater, and only 2.5% of global water resources are freshwater. 0.3% of them are really available to humans. The greenhouse effect of the global climate has exacerbated the crisis of water scarcity. Scientists predict that global warming will make the land sandy and lead to severe drought. Many countries now rely heavily on groundwater. But groundwater is not inexhaustible. Water resources have become one of the most important issues facing human beings in the 21st century. According to a research report published by the United Nations, more than 1 billion people in the world currently lack access to safe drinking water, and more than 5 million people die on average every year. The disease caused by drinking water is ten times the number of people killed and injured by war in the world. The United Nations also warned photo retouching that if human beings continue to consume water at today's rate, by 2025, the water crisis will spread to 48 countries, and at least 2.7 billion people around the world will be threatened by a severe lack of fresh water, while living As many as 5 billion people, or two-thirds of the world's population, will live in areas where fresh water is difficult to access or cannot meet their needs. Due to the increasing shortage of water resources due to population expansion and environmental pollution, international conflicts caused by water resources will increase day by day. In the past 50 years, there have been 507 conflicts over water resources, of which 21 turned into military conflicts. 2. The utilization of water resources in Taiwan Due to factors such as terrain and climate in Taiwan, it is important to effectively utilize precious water resources in the face of increasingly severe hydrological conditions! According to the statistics of the Water Resources Administration in 108, the total water supply in that year was about 16.739 billion cubic meters, of which the water supply mainly depended on reservoirs, rivers, existing groundwater, fresh water and overseas water diversion, etc. These hard-won water resources The main support is to maintain the stability of agricultural, industrial and domestic water.
