On World Water Day, GreenBuzz turns its attention to our overuse and mismanagement of water resource, which has endangered our access to this precious resource - as desertification, saltwater intrusion and pollutants reduce both the quality and quantity of our freshwater ecosystems. When considering these challenges we often turn to freshwater which is pumped from aquifers and put into corn fields, or diverted from rivers to support the mining industry. In those moments, we sometimes forget the immense value that coastal ecosystems provide us - and the incredible risks they face in light of the global water crisis. As important places for biodiversity, as carbon sinks, and as buffers to our freshwater ecosystems - mangroves and our coastal landscapes are of vital importance to our global water resources.
Join GreenBuzz for an informal breakfast on World Water Day, to buzz about water, green infrastructure and coral reefs.
