Around 1.5 billion people engaged in water-related sectors jobs and to ensure its safe delivery. And these millions of people whose livelihoods depend on water are often not protected by basic labour rights.
Water is important in every aspect to maintain good health, for example regular hand washing, is one of the best ways to remove germs and stay fit. Water is essential for production of food items. Water is nature - ecosystems lie at the heart of the global water cycle.

Unfortunately, not everyone can just turn on a tap and get fresh, clean water. According to WHO, India has 97 million people who do not have access to improved sources of drinking water.
