Lack of effective coordination and cooperation among water agencies has led to fragmented water resource institutions which prevent effective management of water resources.In order to solve these problems, all the countries should cooperate together to solve the water crises, distribute water resources rationally, reduce water pollution effectively and purify polluted water rapidly.One cause of water shortage is mismanagement of water resources, and one cause of water degradation is pollution.These irresponsible behaviors waste a large amount of limited water resources, because less irrigation could yield similar productivity (Fan et al., 2012).Therefore, improper management of water causes the shortage of water.Having discussed the caus...

Water pollution occurs through discharging waste into water sources while contamination of ground water sources occurs after the use of certain chemicals including fertilizers which contaminate ground water after use, making such water toxic to humans.Water wastage through simple measures, such as letting water run when not in use or using excess water to perform various household functions, is very effective in conserving the water resource if done in large scale.Since water infrastructure and resource has generally remained constant over the years, population growth rate strains the water resource and creates a shortage in drinking water for populations across the world.These activities damage the environment, contaminate water sources...

In this case, water resources will have to be distributed in respect to priorities, in order to ensure water reaches more important sectors than others.This will ensure that water shortage is cut down, by some extent, since unequal distribution of water normally leads to this menace.On the other hand, putting more pressure on the reliable and safe water supply will lead to the government providing water resources unequally.However, the ever growing population in cities implies an increased demand for water, which puts an additional pressure on available fresh water.In many cases, it is always challenging to pin point the main cause of water shortage.

Neglect of water catchment areas through deforestation and mining has also caused water shortage.However, most agencies dealing with water supply and management are trying to explore alternative water sources such as ground and rainwater, among others.Even developed countries in deserts have water because they invest in water conservation and treatment.Other causes of water shortage include pollution of rivers and lakes, deforestation and poor planning on water conservation methods, among others.Furthermore, efforts should be made to find alternative sources of water like ground water, rainwater, among others (Resnick 1).

As during water shortage, water is very limited.Safe guarding water catchment areas will preserve the raw water quality and reduce cost of treating water which will be translated to affordable water tariff.A raw water quality based raw water tariff should also be in place to ensure the governments are receiving income by safe guarding the water catchment areas to secure raw water resources.With less water used on days when the water is rationed, it is best to realigning the use of fresh water.Climate change has affected the whole water cycle, decreasing water resources and resulted in water shortage.
