UN draws attention to Global Water Crisis in new report

The United Nations (UN) has warned that a global water crisis could occur due to overconsumption and climate change.

According to a report by the UN Water and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), "scarcity has become endemic" due to overconsumption and pollution, and global temperatures have increased seasonal water scarcity, SIA refers to BBC.

About 10 percent of the world's population lives in areas critical to "water stress", said Richard Connor, lead author of the report.

Stating that 3.5 billion people in the world are affected by water stress, which is defined as water demand that exceeds water supplies for at least one month a year, Connor said uncertainties about global water supply are increasing.

Connor warned that if the supply problem is not solved, a global water crisis will emerge.
