What percent of the world is already experiencing water shortages?



  1. 0 Votes

    Out of 6.1 billion people in the world, over one billion do not have access to potable (safely drinkable) water. This does not necessarily mean that all these people live in a region where the physical supply of water is problematic; in some cases, there may be water but it is regularly infected by bacterial and other diseases. In other cases, a socially unjust economic system may simply limit access to existing water supplies for a large part of the population. The parts of the world with the worst physical water shortages include southern and northern Africa, the Middle East, and parts of China and India. However, countries all over Africa, Latin America, and southern Asia, as well as Australia and New Zealand, are having problems with water distribution.
