4 billion people face water shortages for at least one month each year 2021-03-23
About 4 billion people in the world face severe water shortages for at least one month each year, and about 1.6 billion people are unable to obtain clean and safe water supplies. The report pointed out that the current water shortage problem is aggravating. It is estimated that by 2050, more than half of the world's population will still live in water-stressed areas.

Experts pointed out that from 1960 to 2014, the world's water consumption increased by 250%. Factors such as population growth, changes in diet and climate change have made water resources a major global challenge.

From a global perspective, the Middle East and North Africa are the regions with the greatest water pressure on the planet. Twelve of the 17 extremely water-scarce countries and regions are in the Middle East and North Africa. Qatar is the worst, by Israel and Lebanon.

In Africa, Libya and Eritrea have the greatest water pressure, and India is facing the same severe situation. Many areas of the country face long-term water pressure. Groundwater resources are mainly used for irrigation and have been severely overdrawn. Considering that the population of India is 16 other countries With three times the population of the region, the future will face great challenges.

It is worth mentioning that even in countries where the overall water pressure is relatively small, there are some areas with extreme water shortages. For example, the Western Cape in South Africa and New Mexico in the United States are facing extreme water shortages.

There is a better solution
Today, there are more technologies than ever before to bring water to those in need. In particular, there is a method called Atmospheric Water Generation (AWG) or simply: drinking water from air machine. There are many techniques and methods to extract water from the natural humidity of the air, and the success of each method and method depends on the environmental conditions, the technology used, and the energy required to make the process run properly.
