Less than 1% of the water on our planet can be used for human consumption. Yet despite this, there is no global water shortage in overall terms. And where water is short, the situation can be mitigated through the integrated management of our available water resources. For instance, by aligning our water use patterns with the needs of different users, including the environment.
So, while there may not be much water, we do have enough water. We just need to get smart about how we manage the water we have.
