Water is a unique gift of nature to our living planet earth. It is an elixir of life and its cultural and social meaning is deeply rooted in our past heritage. Centuries passed, the civilization has taken birth along the natural watercourse. Global demand for water has tripled since the 1950s, but the supply of fresh water has been declining. Half a billion people live in water-stressed or water-scarce countries, and by 2025 that number will grow to three billion due to an increase in population.
There is no doubt climate change and its adverse impacts has sparked worldwide concern, but so far has failed to inspire world leaders to set aside their national agenda and work together to craft an international strategy for mitigation and adaptation of climate change to save the living planet from irreparable loss of existing precious water resource for humanity.
