Clean Water and Sanitation
To make water available and sustain the current water reserves at the same time.
Importance of Clean Water
Since 1990, there has been an improvement in the supply and restoration of water. More people got access to cleaner water, and the work is still in process. The significant progress towards water management has made it possible for one-third of the population to have cleaner and safe drinking water. The shortage of water is the same for both developing and developed countries, and that is because of the industrial sector.
The heavy pressure on water supply is because of the various industries like the agricultural sector. The constant need and use of water had made water stress one common thing. Through technology, the water situation can be managed, and it could be made possible to distribute water according to the need. Water wastage is a common factor too, and sensor taps and flushes are one of the biggest solutions to safe these.
The high demand for nuts, walnuts, and dry fruits also results in a water shortage. The truth is that the population also requires water-intensive foods. A walnut takes about 19 liters of water to grow, which is a big reason why many countries face water shortages because of the agricultural sector. Technology should be indulged to encounter this issue. But just like farmers, restaurants and other such places require a lot of water too. If it keeps on going this way, the world would be out of the water any time soon.
Important decisions should be taken, and relevant technology should be implemented in order to eradicate the issue of water wastage and sanitation. A few examples of how technology can be used are;
Technology can be used in finding out the areas with the lowest water supply, and those areas can be given at least an adequate amount of pure water from the nearest city.
The software can be used to predict the amount of water flow that a sector or company should require, and the same amount of water should be delivered to avoid wastage.
Big corporations can be motivated to invest in projects related to water management. Not everything, but for drinking, everyone must have access to clean and pure water.
Top companies that help in sustaining and stabilizing the water reservoirs should be awarded and appreciated globally.
Women Empowerment; the First Step
Over the period, things have become a little better. Currently, it is not the same like it used to be. Women and girls are getting their basic rights, and now they do not have to hustle very hard to get the smallest thing done. They are getting exposure in the corporate sector with internet usage, financial freedom, and entrepreneurial opportunities.
A study showed that in the rural areas of developing countries, less than 50% of women have access to the internet. What does this indicate? It tells us that almost half of the population in those rural areas do not have even the basic technical knowledge. With softawares, these women can be educated so that they can learn and move forward. Big corporations can join their hands with relevant companies and try to provide the basic thing, the internet, to these countries' ladies.
Recent research concluded that only 59% of women have an account in a proper financial institute. Over 2 million people do not even have an idea how these things work. With technology, this issue can be resolved. Monetary can educate women and give them a helping hand. Over the period, many women even learned about the banking sector and started owning an account. For the empowerment, education on basic topics is mandatory.
Many women do not step out of their nutshell because of the fear of judgment and low resources. Both the issues can be resolved with the help of technology. For resources, they can contact banks and take loans or find potential investors from relevant platforms. And, to encounter the fear of judgment, they can be educated on how significant it is for women to take a stand for themselves.
Technology and Women Empowerment
Eradicating gender inequality may take some time, it is a gradual process, but it is worth it. Here are a few examples of how technology can be involved in removing gender inequality;
It gets easier to find out about the companies that are open to transparency. Companies that have equal opportunities for both genders.
Artificial intelligence and mechanization can be indulged in order to detect and find out about the companies that give a tough time to the women working there.
The pay gap between male and female employees can be closed, and the pay rate should be decided according to the designation, not the gender.
Women can learn about new and innovative technological trends and can also implement those in their lives. Educating one woman is equivalent to educating the next seven generations.
