Where do you start when you look into the topic of water? There are so many aspects.
At an international level, at least 10% of the world’s population (around 700 million) do not have access to clean water each day.
A growing world population – from 7 billion now to 9 billion by 2050 – and the associated need for more food will stress existing supplies of fresh water.
The actions of upstream nations on draw-downs of river water already affect downstream nations: the Mekong and Niger rivers are examples. Some of these actions might lead to future conflict between nations as a result.
Then there’s climate change and its likely effects on future water supplies, amongst many more water issues.
