No water obviously means end of life, but apathy and shortsightedness stunningly dominates our dealing with increasing shortage of the planet’s most precious liquid. Life giving water is running out.
The problem of water shortage is serious and this will create many problems for agriculture and animal husbandry. Global population will increase and the number of people living in urban areas will more than double. Most of the world’s population growth will occur in developing countries where water is already critically short and many of the residents are impoverished. Even today people do not have access to safe and affordable drinking water and perhaps twice that many lack adequate sanitation services. In fact, inadequate drinking water quality is a leading cause of infant mortality worldwide.
