Too little water

Picture by Boujemaa Otmani

Water scarcity doesn't only limit access to safe drinking water, but it also makes it difficult to practice basic hygiene at home, in schools, and in healthcare facilities. Too little water disproportionally impacts women and children, as they are often tasked to collect it. When water is scarce, it also becomes more expensive, just like all products that need it for production.

Too little water especially affects food production, leading to crop failure, reduced output, and increased prices for everyone. Many of the things we eat and enjoy today will completely vanish, reducing the diversity and nutrition of our food. As you can see, water scarcity affects far more than just the water we drink.
