Earth’s precious resources! Water is essential for the survival of living creatures.

The Pacific Ocean covers half the globe - an area big enough to fit all the continents. In fact, 75% of the world is covered by water, so although we call our planet ’Earth’, perhaps we should really have named it ’Water’!
Most of the water on Earth is salty. Only about 3% is fresh water and some of this is frozen in glaciers and icebergs. Water is essential for the survival of living creatures, but there is a relatively small amount to be shared around - and that makes it very precious.
We need to get better at looking after this valuable resource. Taking care of our water has always been a major aspect of European Union environmental policy.
