The United Nations predict that by 2030 the world will face a 40% global water deficit.
Water scarcity will be exacerbated as rapidly growing urban areas place heavy pressure on neighbouring water resources. Climate change and bio-energy demands are also expected to amplify the already complex relationship between world development and water demand. (Source United Nations) As water becomes more scarce in Europe and the UK, water prices will increase and the water shortage will have a significant negative impact on public health, commerce, industry and the food chain.
There is not a global water shortage as such, however individual countries and regions need to urgently tackle the critical problems presented by water stress. Water has to be treated as a scarce resource, with a strong focus to managing demand. Integrated water resource management provides a broad framework for governments to align water use patterns with the needs and demands of different users, including the environment.
