Here is another student’s essay correction on this topic.

Since creation, water has been essential to man’s existence. Both plants and animals cannot survive without water. For some reasons, some countries do not have sufficient water supply and this is majorly mostly attributed to lack of planning, advancements in technology, and poor governance. (You violated to rule of PARALLELISM here. You can’t link your shoe size with your friend. You can link your shoe size with your friend’s shoe size. Right? Similarly, you can’t link lack of planning and poor governance with technology. Ask any further doubts in the comments box below.) To ensure that water is preserved and supplied sufficiently, the onus lies on the government.

While it is a common knowledge that water is basic, the government of some countries, especially the undeveloped, countries take the issue lightly. An African proverb says, “He who fails to plan, plans to fail.” This is the situation in some of these countries. Consequently, the common man suffers it (To which NOUN does this pronoun refer to? Wrong usage) the most. Consequently, the common man suffers from the shortage of water the most.

Also, the impact of technology cannot be exempted. With the advent of oil exploration, natural water bodies have been polluted and people are left incapacitated on what to do about portable drinkable water. This has drastically led families to be in need of drinking water.

To address the above issues, the government must play a vital role. They (Government = singular; they = plural. Wrong pronoun usage.) have to step-up their game. Measures should be put in place to checkmate the oil and gas industry. Proper planning should be conducted and portable water source provided for the people.

In conclusion, it can be seen that water remains vital to man and sufficiency should be adequate. (You need to work on how to CONCLUDE an essay. Please go through any of my essays under Writing task 2 to learn the art of concluding.)
