Did you know that it takes about 5000 liters of water to produce a kilogram of rice? Rising human populations and increased income levels are leading to increased demand for water-intensive products. This is driving overextraction of water and pollution of freshwater ecosystems – resulting in rivers running dry, lake and groundwater levels dropping, and freshwater species becoming endangered. WWF-Philippines works with governments and businesses to improve the way water is managed and to help protect our watersheds. No water, no life.
