DDD Conference

Water Scarcity

Convener: Shimon Dolberg, Watergen

The global warming, together with the rapid human population growth, have led the world into increasing water scarcity where there is not enough water to meet all demands, including that needed for ecosystems to function effectively. On one hand, the existence of fresh water decreases each year: Arid areas are slowly expanding in a process called desertification; existing water sources are being polluted due to industrial waste and fertilization material penetrating the drinking water. On the other hand, the demand for fresh water increases due to the population growth. Each person needs fresh water to drink and shower, but the majority of the water is required for agriculture and industry to meet each person’s demand for food and supplies.
