One-Fourth of World’s Population Faces Huge Water Stress, Bulk in India

One-quarter of the world’s population faces ‘extremely high’levels of baseline water stress, which means that irrigated agriculture, industries, and municipalities withdraw more than 80 per cent of their available supply on average every year, new data from the World Resources Institute (WRI) show. India is 13th amongst these 17 countries. India has more than three times the population of the other 16 extremely highly stressed countries combined, the WRI noted. This implies that more than three-quarters of these populations facing extremely high water stress live in India. India’s water challenges extend beyond Chennai, which was recently reported to have ‘run out of water’.
