    Hi there! I'm very glad to be here at Myanmar Water Portal Challenge. An then I want to share this.
    Today here, I’ll choose a theme, “Water in the City”. We know of course that Freshwater which is used in our daily lives occupied only 2.5% of all the water on our earth while saltwater is 97.5% and fresh water is in danger because of our increasing population. Starting from our Yangon, we are now using much fresh water not only in commercial buildings but also in residential buildings. So, we have to save the fresh water as we can. The very first thing I would like to join is to know about water problems and how experts are solving them because I am the chosen one in “Waste Water Managing Project ( Country Finalists Top-4) and I long for fixing the necessaries of my project. I also yearn to be better in solving Water Problems throughout my country. The last one but is not least important is that I want to make a good communication with all experts in water management. I believe that I may have an innovative idea that deals with water management as I always want to consider about it. Moreover, I can’t help but say that I love nature and I want to know what is happening to our nature and so I want to join this. And the challenge from my point of view for our Yangon is that using much fresh water and to reduce it as much as we can. We are using 26.8% in toilet of in our daily usage and it’s the most. We use water in shower, clothes washers, and others. I want to recycle all the water from shower, clothes washers and reuse them in toilet with the help of a filter. If we reused water, we would save it a lot. And I have a solution called Green Flushing.
