Industry the key to water crisis says union bgospelhitzoss
Water is the most expensive consumer goods that our industry needs to create jobs and reduce costs, according to a new report by the International Federation of Mineworkers’ Council (IFMC) and the International Water Management Association (IWMMA).
«In this era of rising costs, we are finding that the only way that we can create employment and reduce the number of people employed through a successful transition from informal agriculture to the traditional economy will be through our industry’s most basic commodity: water,» the IFMC-IWMMA study, which includes an international survey of 2,200 workers, says.
The report states that water demand is the biggest hurdle to meeting the IWC’s goal to be carbon-neutral within 20 years.
The key problem is the growing lack of workers with the skills and qualifications to handle and manage water flows in the country, the report states.
While more than 20 percent of the country’s water users in 2015 (15.9 million households) were in areas prone to drought or flood, this number fell to 9 percent in 2015 (3.2 million households) after being more than 15 percent in 2008, the report states.
The IWC and the IWMMA say that although the IWC has a mandate in setting water flows targets, the organization should do its job in building capa바카라city, especially for the informal sector.
«Water resources management cannot be an industry problem for the industry, but we as the industry need to make the water management job of a workforce a priority,» said IWW Vice-President-elect Frank Shuster.
«The IWC and IWMMA agree that the solution to solving this very important global climate crisis will be to develop industry to address these challenges in a way that produces jobs, not less,» he added.

The study lists water flow and use patterns, water pricing and distribution, supply and demand, demand management, energy consumption, transportation and water prices as major challen바카라사이트ges facing water management.
Fen said a significant role must now be played in meeting these challenges. «If we do not, our economy will not get a significant break in jobs and our water supply will not get a sustainable fix.»
The report further notes that the IWC is looking at creating training programs and programs on water and the economy.
It also suggests the IWC should take other steps to promote the development of a skilled water sector in the country, which coul
