what makes a water shortage?



  1. 0 Votes

    There are many factors contributing to water shortages around the world.  Modern industrialized agriculture tends not to make very efficient use of water resources, and wasteful agricultural practices have contributed to a decline in water availability in many places.  In addition, growing human populations in many parts of the world put added pressure on what water resources are left.  Then again, in parts of the developing world it is not a shortage of water itself that is the problem, so much as it’s lack of access to clean, drinkable water.  Improper disposal systems for human waste and industrial waste has polluted the drinking supplies of thousands or millions of people around the world.  Finally, existing water tensions will likely be made even more severe as global warming leads to increased drought in many areas of the world that are already suffering from shortages.
