Growing demand for water from households, industry, agriculture, and to maintain the health of our environmental services poses rapidly growing challenges for the rational management of this resource. Uncertainty regarding the future availability of water and universal access to it is increasing on all continents. Water (availability/scarcity/ management) is one of the top global risks according to the 2015 World Economic Forum Global Risk Report. By 2030, the world could face a 40% shortfall in water supply if no changes are made in how water is managed. The total demand for agricultural products in 2030 is expected to grow by around 60% to meet the demands arising from growing populations and higher incomes.
