Water scarcity around the world ..
BBC : Despite covering 70% of Earth's surface, potable fresh water is just 3% of global supplies.
2.7 billion of the 7.5 billion people on earth (36%) have stressed water supplies, with one billion people (14%) lacking access to water.
As per UN endorsed projections, these are the 12 cities around the world most likely to be in the grip of acute water shortage by 2030 AD, when demand will exceed supply by 40%.
