Water, one of the basic requirements for survival is facing a crisis. Unfortunately, one out of six people lack access to safe drinking water, while more than two, out of six lack adequate sanitation.
Lack of strong institutions and agreements, changes within a basin, often give way to Trans boundary tensions finally leading to water scarcity.
Water problems at the Aral Sea, Parana La Plata, the Jordan and the Danube further bring home the point. Due to the lack of regional collaboration, major water projects get disrupted half way, resulting in regional instability.
