ISO为世界水日采取行动

水是生命。但是,当水不安全不卫生时,水能要人的命。对成百上千万的人来说,这事儿每天都会发生。今天是世界水日——这一天是为了让那些没有干净水的人们生活有所不同。

目前,6.63亿人无法获得安全饮用水。如果没有这种基本的服务,他们别无选择,只能喝可以杀死他们的脏水。大约24亿人——三分之一——无法进入正常的厕所。许多人被迫去露天,传播危险病原体的地方解决需求。你能想象没有安全饮水的生活吗?

每年3月22日,世界各地的人们都在庆祝世界水日。对ISO来说,这一天我们需要评估ISO标准是如何为那些没有干净水的人带来改变的。无论是漏水的管道导致的每天损失数十亿加仑的饮用水,还是水中铅含量过重或未经处理的污水,ISO标准都在减轻这些问题上做出了实际贡献。

今年的主题“为什么要浪费水?”引发我们思考,ISO标准在寻求可持续发展的同时是如何帮助应对废水的。标准所涉及的领域提供了水的处理和使用,供水服务以及农业、制造业和建筑业的灌溉用水的绝好实践。

农业中废水的处理和再利用不仅可以在沙漠中营造绿洲,还可以促进经济发展和维护社区和谐。最近发布的ISO 16075系列标准(由ISO / TC 282技术委员会制定,水的再循环,为治理后的污水用于灌溉项目提供了指南。此外,一项新的国际研讨会协定(IWA 20)——该协定是与以色列的标准机构合作制定的——将会推进全球可持续的滴灌方法的使用。这些只是ISO标准继续应对世界废水挑战的一些方法。

水是生命的基础。水对于具有包容性和可持续性的发展至关重要。这就是水成为2030年新可持续发展议程的核心的原因,Goal 6强调,确保水的需求得到满足,水的可持续管理和水卫生。

确保到2030年普及安全、可负担得起的饮用水,这要求我们投资建设充足的基础设施,提供卫生设施并鼓励各个层面的卫生。不要忘记给ISO国际标准投资——毕竟,我们有500多项标准可以让水循环更有利于地球上的每一种生物。

 

Water is life. But when water is unsafe and sanitation non-existent, water can kill. For millions of people, it’s a daily reality. Today is World Water Day – a day about making a difference for people who do not have the water they need.

Right now, 663 million people don’t have access to safe water. Without this basic service, they have no choice but to drink dirty water that could kill them. Some 2.4 billion people – one in three – don’t have access to a proper toilet. Many are forced to go in the open, spreading dangerous pathogens. Can you imagine life without safe water to drink?

Every year on 22 March, people worldwide celebrate World Water Day. At ISO, it’s a day for us to take stock of how ISO standards are making a difference for people who do not have the water they need. Whether it’s billions of gallons of drinking water lost every day due to leaky pipes, lead poisoning in water or untreated wastewater, ISO standards have a practical contribution to make in alleviating a number of these problems.

This year’s theme “Why waste water?” invites us to think about how ISO standards are helping to respond to wastewater in the quest for sustainable development. Areas addressed by standards offer best practice on the treatment and use of water, the provision of water services and the use of irrigation in agriculture, manufacturing and construction.

Treating and reusing wastewater in agriculture can not only provide an oasis in the desert, it can boost economies and save communities. Now, a recently published ISO 16075 series of standards (developed by technical committee ISO/TC 282, Water reuse, provides guidelines for treated wastewater use in irrigation projects. In addition, a new International Workshop Agreement (IWA 20), developed in collaboration with the Standards Institution of Israel, offers information destined to advance the worldwide use of a sustainable drip irrigation method. These are just some of the ways ISO standards will continue to respond to the world’s wastewater challenges.

Water is fundamental to life. It is vital for more inclusive and sustainable development. This is why water stands at the heart of the new 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, highlighted in Goal 6 on ensuring the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation.

Ensuring universal access to safe and affordable drinking water by 2030 requires that we invest in adequate infrastructure, provide sanitation facilities and encourage hygiene at every level. Let’s not forget to invest in ISO International Standards – after all, we have 500-plus standards to make the water cycle work better for every living thing on the planet.
