Freshwater Crisis

Cartographer: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal

Today, the great pressure on water resources is rising human populations, particularly growing concentrations in urban areas. This diagram shows the impact of expected population growth on water usage by 2025, based on the UN mid-range population projection

Scientific American has made a collection of articles, photos and other material related to the worlds freshwater crisis. It gives a pretty good overview of what we have to consider when trying to mitigate the expected crisis.
