India op rand van ergste watercrisis ooit

Graphic News

June 15, 2018 -- India lijdt onder de ergste watercrisis in de geschiedenis. 600 miljoen
mensen krijgen te maken met acuut watertekort. De crisis verergert als
in 2030 de vraag twee keer zo hoog wordt als de beschikbare voorraad.

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.
