Water scarcity and climate change


Agriculture uses 70% of the earth's fresh water,3 times more than 50 years ago.


Aproximately 40% of the world's food relies on artificial irrigation. This is expected to increase by 19% by 2050

40%  Discharged Water

in developing countries,more  than 80% of domestic wastewater is discharged untreated,polluting rivers,lakes and costal areas.

26 Billion Litre Annualy

South africa already has 7 million people without access to water requiring an additional 26 billion litres annually


Globally,Industry draws up to 40% of all water available and is one of the biggest contriutors ofindustrial wastewater.

8% Total water usage

In South Africa industrial water use accounts for approximately 8% of total usage,and is incresing exponentially.

Population Increase

Rapidly industrialising countries' current populations could increases 5 times over the next 10 to 20 years, driving water scarcity to new lows.

170 Billion Litres

211 tonnes of platinum were exported in 2012, that's equivalent to 170 billion litres of water-the amount needed to mine and process the metal

1000 Operational Mines

South africa has at least 1000 operational mines, which collectively use the same amount of water as the country's entire population of 53 million.
