There are many ways in which water is wasted and these include letting water run within households when it is not in use, lack of water recycling and lack of water harvesting among other means.These activities damage the environment, contaminate water sources or put pressure on water resources leading to a shortage of drinking water.This form of water conservation ensures that there is minimal water wastage and that human beings have access to clean drinking water.Avoiding water wastage ensures that the water resource is conserved and that there is enough water to meet all human activities.Since water infrastructure and resource has generally remained constant over the years, population growth rate strains the water resource and creates ...

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.(Glennon, 2010) Subsequently, in order to meet the supply and demand of water, there should be a greater focus on the causes and the solutions of water supply shortages.Moreover, it must be understood that increased costs of providing water, leads to adverse water shortage, since few people can only afford it.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.

Also, until all the undergoing projects are not completed and the availability of water is not ensured by the government: the threat of water ending in the next 50 years is not removed, the government should install meters at all the consumer points to keep a check on the amount of water being utilized and charged for the number of units used just the way electricity is charged.Oil Rich But Water Scarce UAE in Grave Danger of Losing It’s Water Resources in Just 50 Years.The rapid population growth of the country increases the stress on the water resources by increasing the production of desalinated water which results costly and decreases the production of ground water.The government of UAE could also try to pump the wasted water into un...

To conclude, the global food supply shortage problem is an urgent problem in front of all human beings and not easy to be solved.A series of problems following food supply shortage like the competition of land, water and energy are also existed.This new food producing system will be science-based, reuse the environmental waste and make global cooperation, which seems the most functional and environmental-friendly way to solve the problem.The first one is hard to achieve as more land, water and energy needed for human beings to live rather than putting into the argriculture system.For the second one, it still has some unknown threats to both the environment and human health, while if the third one is done, more carbon dioxide might be pro...

One of the causes of this problem is saltwater intrusion, “saltwater intrusion is the movement of seawater into aquifers and salt water mixing with ground water, which can contribute to ground water pollution and other consequences” (Wikipedia, 2014).Integrated water resources management (IWRM) which has been defined by the Global Water Partnership (GWP) as “a process which promotes the coordinated development and management of water, land and related resources, in order to maximize the resultant economic and social welfare in an equitable manner without compromising the sustainability of vital ecosystems”.Some citizen are suffering from drought because they depended on these wells to provide clear water for them to drink it, but, few of...

Moreover, water agencies in poor countries are facing an uphill task in supplying clean water for consumption due to increased desertification, corruption, poor planning and increasing pollution (Resnick 1).Furthermore, efforts should be made to find alternative sources of water like ground water, rainwater, among others (Resnick 1).Neglect of water catchment areas through deforestation and mining has also caused water shortage.Proper management of water supply should be ensured to avoid spillage and contamination, which may infect people with water borne diseases.Even developed countries in deserts have water because they invest in water conservation and treatment.
