More than 1 Fleming 2 fear a water shortage in the future
More than half of the respondents (51.8 percent) is worried about a possible water scarcity in the future. This is evident from a survey with 1,000 Flemish respondents of the development organization to Join For Water. In particular, on this day, the international world water day, would like to Join For Water us actively think about our water consumption.

During the dry summer last year we were called to our water consumption as much as possible. More than 8 in 10 Flemings (84,3 per cent) responded to that call, as it appeared from an examination after the summer. Cars were washed, the grass in the garden and the plants received less water, and we had less time under the shower. the
