The world would face a 40% global water deficit

May 18, 2021

A story in three pictures from United Nations Water's latest report:

1. The world is using a lot of water. More and more with every passing year.
2. The world is draining its water reservoirs faster than they can recuperate.
3. The world is experiencing increasing seasonal water variability creating a more erratic and uncertain water supply.
 
As a result the world would face a 40% global water deficit.
Adaptation to water stress starts with better management of existing water resources.
We know how. Let's start today!
