People can’t imagine life without water. Without water, the earth we live on would be a dead desert. Climate changes, including rising temperatures and sea levels, precipitation change, droughts and floods cause unpredictable thread for the human and natural systems. Water shortage will be the most serious issue in one of them, which is affecting food production and bio-diversity as well as water consumption for human being. Right now, almost a billion of people on the planet don't have access to safe, clean drinking water. This means one out of eight people will face this problem on the Earth. Fortunately, people have realized this inevitable problem and are trying to find the solution.
