Water scarcity has been a major challenge for decades. However, the magnitude of the challenge is now growing, making water scarcity a serious threat for countries all over the world. It is estimated that close to 1/3 of the world’s population will live in water scarcity areas by 2025 – and this number includes both developing and developed countries.
To fight this adverse development, there should be a global consensus to arrive at a smarter and data-driven approach towards understanding the challenges and addressing the solutions. The true testament to engineering a better future will emerge from pushing the boundaries of climate and energy technologies, that will aid in a green transition to meet the world’s climate targets.
