Indeed we are. According to the site http://www.worldwaterwars.com, about 40% of the world’s population is currently affected in some way by acute shortages of clean water for drinking and irrigation. And the UN Environmental Agency predicts that the problem is growing faster by the day, such that in 50 years some 3 billion people worldwide will be severely short of water! Current and future shortages are predicted to be the worst in the Middle East, Africa, and in the world’s major river basins like the Danube.
Some parts of the world are certainly feeling the water crunch, which leads some people talking about the next world war ‘will be over water’. About 1/6 of the world’s human population lacks access to clean drinking water and more than two million people die each year from water-borne diseases. The US Agency for International Development said that by 2025, 1/3 of all humans will face severe and chronic water shortages. This is a condition that has to do with scarcity as well as poor management and inequitable distribution
