Water pollution is an issue affecting nearly 100 million people globally, but a new report has found that the issue is getting worse and could cause the global water supply to be in trouble.
In the report, published by the Global Water Policy Research Centre at the University of Oxford, the scientists said that as the world population continues to grow, the water supply of developing countries is projected to fall by at least 20 percent by 2050, and could fall to as low as 6 percent of global production.
“The world is facing water crisis and the situation is getting more severe,” said Prof. John Boudreau, co-author of the study.
“As water quality deteriorates in the developed world, it’s no longer sustainable for water users in the developing world to supply the global population with water.”
“The global water infrastructure will need to change dramatically, particularly in areas where we have a large proportion of people living in poverty and underdeveloped nations.”
We need to focus on the problem and take action.
“In addition to the growing problem of water pollution, water security is also becoming a growing concern.
The report said the number of people who lack access to safe drinking water has doubled in recent years, with the number more than doubling to 2.6 billion people.”
Water security is a critical issue for the future of our societies and economies,” said the study’s co-authors, who include Dr. Mark J. O’Malley from the University at Buffalo, Dr. John C. Smith from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Dr. Matthew R. Wood, a water resource scientist with the University Research Institute for Environment and the Environment.”
The authors, including Prof. Jody Williams of the University College London, noted that water security can be linked to economic development, including improved governance and social services.””
And the most dramatic difference is the increase in water insecurity.”

“While water security has a long history in developing countries, this new study shows that the scale of the problem has been much more pronounced and global water insecurity is a global problem,” said Williams.
“This study shows there is a crisis of trust in our water system, and we need to build resilience in all parts of our global economy to address this challenge.”
The Global Water Security and Water Governance Report was published on Tuesday by the Water Policy Institute.
The research is part of the Global Food Security Initiative, which aims to help countries tackle the challenges of water security and water insecurity and improve the resilience of the food system.
“Governments have a duty to take care of our water and we should take care to do so,” said Smith.
“Water security must be addressed and improved, and governments must use their power to support the development of innovative solutions that address water security.”
In the world of agriculture, water is key to the sustainability of agricultural production.
However, the report found that many poor countries have inadequate access to water.
According to the report: “The number of food production systems is projected decline by approximately 10 percent globally, from 2.7 billion to 2 billion in 2050.
The world’s food production is expected to decrease by 2.4 percent between 2020 and 2050.””
The world’s agricultural producers face a food security crisis because of insufficient access to sustainable water resources.
The world’s food production is expected to decrease by 2.4 percent between 2020 and 2050.”
As well, the global food security gap is growing.
“Even with the increase of the world food supply, the projected food security shortfall for 2030 is expected at a cumulative amount of 1.8 billion people.”””
We cannot afford to ignore this issue,” said O’Mahony. “

“We cannot afford to ignore this issue,” said O’Mahony.
“We need a clear and consistent global strategy to address water insecurity, as we can only hope that this report will help to inform decisions and actions.”
“It is important that we have an accurate picture of the water resources available to us to provide our citizens with safe drinking and cooking water and for us to be able to address the problem,” Boudue said.
“With a growing population, the amount of water needed to produce and distribute food is increasing and there are many water-related challenges that need addressing,” he added.
