Water stress is a global problem. As noted by the Council for Foreign Relations, a shortage of drinking water is often not a matter of actual scarcity of water, but a lack of essential infrastructure like storage and sanitation facilities. However, in certain regions of the world such as the Middle East, North Africa, and the southwestern United States, physical water scarcity is a problem demanding creative solutions to find new supplies of fresh water in addition to making wise use of the resources that are available. Exacerbating the issue is the increasing unpredictability of rainfall patterns, which makes it more difficult for regions already grappling with water scarcity to effectively plan.
