World Water Day 2018 Special: Nature for Water

Water is Life, as they say, and fresh water is necessary for the survival of all living organisms on Earth, but it’s also a resource under threat. Only three per cent of water on the planet is freshwater, and only about one per cent is readily available for human use. World Water Day is celebrated annually on the 22nd of March and this year, the theme is "Nature for Water". We find out is meant by "nature-based solutions" to help avert a water crisis, from WWF-Malaysia's Norizan Mohd Mazlan, the Head of Conservation in Peninsular Malaysia, and Datin Daria Mathew, the Freshwater Lead for Klang Valley and Setiu Wetlands.
