Prediction: Significant Global Water Shortage by 2030

Access to water is crucial. A constantly increasing global population and economy is increasing demand on a valuable resource that grows more scarce every year.

Last week's "declaration of famine confirms that the Horn of Africa emergency is the worst humanitarian crisis in the world now," according to C.A.R.E., this comes at the same time when food prices and rising fuel costs have skyrocketed and the global economy is riddled in crisis.

According to a 2010 report from McKinsey Quaterly, there will be a significant shortage of water by 2030, given the current rates of usage by agriculture.

How will the water scarcity challenge be addressed? 
How will it affect the market? 
What new agricultural processes and technologies are available to remedy and decrease water usage?


Together we will pursue the answers to these questions and more at IBC's Water 2.0 Investment Summit and Agriculture 2.0 Global Investment Conference on November 7-8, 2011 in Ontario, Canada. We hope you can join us!

  5. This prediction is scary, to say the least. In such a situation, the non-seriousness of governments around the world is ridiculous I was given the task by my environmental sciences teacher - to do research on the water crisis and present my findings in from of the class. I also have to look for College Essay Help services for my language course essay so I can focus my efforts on the research.

  7. This water shortage problem isn’t only affecting Africa. I mean, it’s not even 2030 but my uncle’s ranch has already started having dry patches on the fields. This’s serious. I mean, now that I’m done with business school, thanks to the best finance essay writing service there are, preparing top notch task pieces for me, I’m planning to head back to Vermont and work on the ranch’s irrigation system.

  8. My grandfather has been farming for around 62 years and counting, where he has raised more than 10000 crops on 150 acres of land. Now that the world has been running out of water, he told me to, "get over with college, get your assignment done and go to Israel" . He wanted me to learn micro agriculture and advance irrigation systems which I could implement on the land. Not only learning this increase yield, but made me and gramps a lot of bucks too
