Summary

Of all the Earth’s water, only 2.5 per cent is freshwater. Of this, nearly 70 per cent is frozen in the ice caps of Antarctica and Greenland, leaving less than 1 per cent of all water on Earth available for human consumption. This booklet details some of the activities of WMO and National Hydrological Services in combating this problem, and addresses some of the problems anticipated for the future.
