Coping with Climate Change: The Water Scarcity Dilemma
Global forums and international organisations have been listing water scarcity as a top priority risk and a major constraint to socio-economic development, a growing problem for businesses, and a threat to growth and stability on a global scale.
Conference of Parties (COP22) was held recently in Marrakesh and its focus was that of water scarcity, water cleanliness and water-related sustainability, a major problem in the developing world, including many African states.
