Abstract

As the world grapples with the profound impacts of climate change and population growth, the dynamics of water resources are undergoing a transformative shift. This abstract provides an overview of the evolving landscape of water resources, focusing on the challenges posed by increasing scarcity and the imperative for effective water management. The escalating demand for water, driven by population expansion, urbanization, and industrialization, is placing unprecedented stress on finite water supplies. Concurrently, climate change is altering precipitation patterns, exacerbating extreme weather events, and intensifying droughts, further complicating the availability of water resources. The intersection of these factors necessitates a comprehensive reevaluation of water management strategies. This paper explores the multifaceted dimensions of water scarcity, encompassing not only quantitative shortages but also qualitative issues such as water quality degradation. It investigates the socio-economic implications of water scarcity, ranging from impacts on agriculture and food security to potential conflicts over diminishing water supplies. Moreover, it underscores the disproportionate burden borne by marginalized communities, emphasizing the need for equitable and inclusive water management approaches.
