India on brink of worst-ever water crisis

06/15/2018

June 15, 2018 -- India is suffering from the worst water crisis in its history with 600 million people facing acute water shortage, a government think-tank says. The crisis is only going to get worse.

By 2030, the country’s water demand is projected to be twice the available supply, implying severe water scarcity for hundreds of millions of people and an eventual 6% loss in the country’s GDP.

21 Indian cities, including New Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai and Hyderabad, are likely to run out of groundwater by 2020.

States ranked lowest at managing water – such as Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Rajasthan and Haryana – are home to nearly half of India’s 1.3bn population as well the bulk of its agricultural produce.

Around 200,000 Indians die every year because they have no access to clean water.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
