The world’s population is growing and water consumption is increasing, but water resources are decreasing. “The world is running out of water,” stated Tony Clarke and Maude Barlow, activists and experts on water issues, in their article ‘Water Wars’, published by the Polaris Institute in 2003. They said that by 2025, world population would increase to 2.6 billion more than the present day and water demands would exceed availability by 56 percent. People will live in water-scarcity areas, and disputes over resources are inevitable.
