WATER SCARCITY AND MENTAL HEALTH
Data from reports on global sanitation reveal the presence of an alarming disparity in access to clean water or water resources in general, with deleterious consequences for the health of many of the world's populations. Indeed, the United Nations has come together to discuss and implement change and safeguards with respect to water scarcity. The global water crisis is accompanied by a modest misuse of water for industrial reasons, along with a lack of awareness at the societal level of this problem. Likewise, the heavily affected populations also and especially suffer at the psychological level from this crisis, which is also associated with other effects of climate change. It is therefore considered important to address the psychological distress associated with the difficulties of obtaining clean water, as well as to ensure a more egalitarian and just distribution of resources for all countries of the world.
