The world has woken up to the dangerous consequences of the looming water crisis. Demand is rising rapidly thanks to industrialization, population growth, climate change and the planet’s growing need for food, yet nature has decreed that supply is fixed. With agriculture, homes, factories and offices consuming water in ever greater quantities, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is warning that by 2030, nearly half the world’s population could face a scarcity of water, with demand outstripping supply by 40%. As water plays a crucial role in all segments of nature, society and economy, access to water will become a fundamental issue to individuals, governments, companies and ecosystems.
