21st Century Problems (Water Shortage)

Water Shortage

Rivers and streams are driving up. Many farmers will not have enough essential water to grow crops for living. Scarcity of water would cause the prices of water to increase and people will have wars over water.

Today, nearly 1 billion people in the developing world don't have access to it. Yet, we take it for granted, we waste it, and we even pay too much to drink it from little plastic bottles. Water is one of the basic necessity of life. Without it, we will die.

Water is so precious that to this day, far too many people all around the world, spend their entire day searching for it. Water shortage can affect other factors: Education is lost to sickness. Economic development is lost while people merely try to survive. 

As you can see, water is so important that people would pay large price for it. Water scarcity is both a natural and a human-made phenomenon. There is enough freshwater on the planet for seven billion people but it is distributed unevenly and too much of it is wasted, polluted and unsustainably managed.

This therefore, is an impending problem that people all around the world are still finding a solution to water scarcity.
