The United Nations Warning the world about the sand crisis

The United Nations Warning the world about the sand crisis


Experts have repeatedly said that the world’s future is not very happy. On the one hand, this blue planet plagues various problems like air pollution and climate change.

Meanwhile, the United Nations is growing concerned about another crisis. They warned that civilization would soon suffer from the lack of sand! The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) recently warned the world.

Why is sand so important? Sand is the most widely used substance in the world. Sand uses in everything from housing to walls, even glass preparation.

However, the growing use of sand and the snatching of sand from riverbeds and beaches is creating an environmental crisis. Gradually there is a risk of sand shortage.

If this continues, human civilization will have to face significant problems due to the lack of sand in the future.

Sand plays a vital role in protecting the environment from major storms and other natural disasters. Moreover, looking at that, the concern of the United Nations.

A new UNEP report was released last week. Twenty-two writers have contributed to the article.

As per the report, stealing sand from the Mekong River banks, the longest river in Southeast Asia, has already created problems. The adjacent delta is sinking.

With the removal of large amounts of sand in Sri Lanka, the river’s course has changed! As a result, seawater enters the island’s interior, attracting the crocodile.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) estimates that sand takes thousands, if not millions, of years to form rock erosion.

 If sand keeps stolen in this way, time will not be available to form new sand. Moreover, as a result, there will be a lack of sand. If we are not careful, civilization will have to face significant problems.
