Our world is in trouble and we are witnessing more natural disasters than ever before. Global warming and water pollution are two major environmental problems that the entire world needs to be concerned about. Water is crucial for life and the world just can’t afford to be a silent witness to the water sources being polluted. Water pollution awareness in different countries hopes to find solutions to problems with this very scarce resource. There is to be a collaboration between scientists from New Zealand and China with Lincoln to host NZ-China water research centre. The centre is to develop research strategies on how to bring about more water pollution awareness by looking at issues such as the contamination of both ground- and surface water as well as poor water usage in agriculture, in both China and New Zealand. The establishment of the water research centre as it works towards a better quality water and therefore better food production is also going to boost relations between these two countries in their efforts to save water.
