Water

For human beings, nothing can replace water. Our "blue planet" owes its name to the water that covers around two-thirds of the earth's surface. Nevertheless, water is still a scarce resource: only 1% of world's water is available as drinking water. The Munich Re Foundation is supporting projects which provide drinking water in arid regions or in case of emergency.
