Global Water Shortage

Water resources are diminishing day by day. In fact water is becoming a scare commodity in the world with every passing day. The situation is very grave which is likely to initiate regional and global conflicts in the near future. With rapid population growth, water consumption is doubling every twentieth year. As a result the water resources are decreasing fast every day. With the next twenty years, all wars and conflicts would be about water. So every government around the globe specially governments in our region should take the matter seriously and build dams and educate people about water management.
