Sometimes we think that natural resources will hesitate us life, i.e. the media bombard us with warnings about the need to use these resources wisely, but we still don’t have full awareness of what this means in our lives. Let’s be honest, irrationally wasted water in the Peru, State enterprises are incompetent as to regularize the prices of fares, the absence of an appropriate policy for handling and aprovechanmiendo of this vital resource has resulted in waste and a powerful reason for privatization. It is also true that our country was vendecido with possessing a good part of this resource at the global level, but according to the World Meteorological Organisation calculates that, if current patterns of consumption, are not changed by 2025 two of every three people on Earth will live in conditions of social water tension, because the current level of spending is unsustainable. According to a press release of April 2010 date, the Spanish Fund of Cooperation for water and sanitation in Latin America and the Caribbean (Spanish Fund).

The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), provided technical assistance in the preparation of the project to expand the supply of drinking water and basic sanitation in about 380 rural communities and small towns in the regions of Apurimac, Ayacucho, Cusco, Huancavelica and Puno the poorest in the country, benefiting about 206,000 people who currently lack such services or receive them poorlyIt will develop together with the Peruvian Government and Spanish cooperation over a period of five years. The Government of Peru will invest additional $18 million in the project. But according to another report, dated 2 July 2010, the Peruvian Institute of Economics, in recent years the sanitation sector in the Peru has not submitted great advances. Within the main existing problems we can mention the shortfall in coverage, both sewer and drinking water (23%) (38%), as well as the lack of continuity of the service of drinking water (17.4 hours on average). Also in this sector the problem arises of water treatment as long as much of wastewater generated is not receiving any type of treatment prior to final disposal. In this regard, Blog Action Day is an annual event that brings together bloggers from around the globe in the publication on the same topic on the same day. Our goal is to create awareness and provoke a global debate on an important issue that affects us all. This year is this playing with regard to water issues.
