The water crisis
Moreover, for about 10 years analyses and forecasts of the "United Nations" (UN), the "Food and Agriculture Organisation" (FAO), the "World Health Organisation" (WHO), the "United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation" (UNESCO), the "United Nations Development Programme" (UNDP) and the World Bank have pointed to:
the aggravation of the water crisis in the world. As such by 2032, 40 years after the first Earth-Summit in Rio the Janeiro, allegedly 60% of the world population will live in areas with water stress.
serious problems concerning the water resources for agriculture in China, India and the US. In these countries the aquifers have lowered remarkably due to extreme use of water for agriculture and industry in the last 50 years.
a multiplication and intensification of "water conflicts" between states. More and more water is described in terms of "Blue Gold", as once oil was referred to as "Black Gold". Many believe that the XXIst century will be a century of water wars.
