The global water crisis is becoming more pronounced day by day. Various problems including floods, droughts, heavy rains, waterlogging are seen every year in South Asia which are getting worse. In most cases, unlimited water pollution, unplanned and poor management are exacerbating the drinking water crisis.
According to a 2018 report by government-funded think tank NITI Aoyag, 600 million people across the country face high to extreme water stress, and around 200,000 people die every year because they lack adequate access to safe water. By 2030, it says, the demand for water in India is expected to be double the available supply. Activists say the water shortages stem from poor planning and management and are exacerbated by climate change, which has led to more droughts and floods.
