From: Inside Story

What can be done to stop global water scarcity?

The UN says in the next 10 years more and more countries will see their resources dry up.

Water scarcity is a growing problem, caused by everything from man-made climate change to poor governance.

It is affecting more people than ever before and across all continents.

In a time of technological innovation, why is something as basic as access to water still such a huge problem?

And even as aid organisations work to resolve it, has climate change progressed so far that water scarcity will inevitably affect ever more people?
