Water shortage is a significant crisis, and solving this is one of the attainments of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This crisis affects the livelihood of communities and is being increasingly reported as a financial risk to organizations. According to the Water Action decade initiative 2018-2028, there will be a steep fall of around 40% in freshwater availability by 2030, which alongside a rising population will push towards a global water crisis.
Today, around 1.7 billion people live in river basins where water usage is far more than its rate of recharge. Data by the United Nations suggests that 40% of the global population is directly affected by water scarcity, and the numbers are predicted to rise in the coming years. These shortages are manifested by a lack of reliable access to safe and affordable water in many urban areas, an increased pressure on water to grow food and sustain livelihoods in rural or semi-rural areas, and a rapid deterioration of the ecosystems that in turn, supply water and depend on water for their proper functioning.
