Water is the source of all life and without it no one can survive. But at the same time as it is unevenly distributed on our planet, if the governments cannot properly manage the water, it will be a scarce natural resource. As a primary social and financial resource, water has the power to destroy, and to create. The Figures for water loss are staggering. Within seven years, from 2003 to 2010, parts of Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran lost 144 cubic kilometers stored fresh water. Two billion people live in areas where drinking water is constantly reduced, while the number is expected to rise to five billion by 2025. The drought, which aggravates the observed global warming and which unfortunately is expected to intensify in the coming years, already estimated to have cost the lives of 1.8 million people annually worldwide, particularly because of inadequate water consumption. These crises are posed by water scarcity and are ranked as a global risk, higher and from wars. Dramatically and data of NASA show this problem. Experts warn that modern world will be jeopardized because of water scarcity. That’s why governments must fight and cooperate to protect water resources and present its significance for the world.
