At the same time, Dr. Drew also explained that he is pressing for this issue’s significance in the wider context of climate challenges being faced by island-developing states.

On the 05th editions of Roundtable, which was held on October 05, Dr Drew spoke specifically of the cumulative and dual effects of two natural phenomena that are climate change and El-Nino effects.

Dr Drew also highlights the issue repeatedly: “The symptoms of climate change are all around us from the encroachment of sargassum seaweed on our coast, the extreme temperatures rise to the urgent water scarcity issue we are now facing.”

According to Prime Minister Dr Drew, immediate action is required to raise awareness to mitigate the effects of water wastage.

Speaking further, Dr. Drew also stated that “it’s vital to educate our citizens about the climate change’s profound effects and to take swift, proactive steps in response. Addressing these challenges is foundational to our sustainable island state vision,”
Prime Minister also said that water is a global priority and we all need to go hand in hand to conserve it . We need to save water, if not for us, then certainly for generations to come and even if not for the next generation, then for the world we live in the earth.

He further said we need to educate everyone about the importance of water conservation. The more we will inform the people, the more water we will be able to save.
