Need To Conserve Biodiversity By Conserving Water Resources

05 Jun 2020

Biodiversity and water resources are intrinsically linked. Biodiversity supports water resources including nutrient cycling in soil and plants. This process controls water quality. Similarly, water resources supports biodiversity: without sufficient water there is stress on species thereby causing biodiversity loss. Conserving biodiversity helps waterways against nitrogen pollution. In fact, streams with more species help in removing excess nutrients in water. Accordingly, the Sustainable Development Goals (Goal 6) relating to water and sanitation talks about sustainable development of water ecosystem including forest, wetland, lakes being part of biodiversity.
