Global Warming
Climate change has been happening….
Global mean temperature has been constantly rising especially since the last 100 years.
Temperature has risen by 0.74 degree Celsius in the last 100 years IPCC
Our Earth might look something  like this …
This trend will continue at a much faster pace in the coming years.
Climate Change will negatively impact the quality and quantity of water.
62-76% of Global area will be under water stress
Glaciers will drastically reduce by 2030

Global average sea levels are rising since 1993 at 3.1 mm per yr. IPCC (4 th  assessment)
Floods have become more frequent
Area affected by drought will increase
Increasing scarcity of water
 
Rural to Urban migration will compound the problem
Urbanisation, population explosion and industrialisation will increase water consumption by 20-40% by 2020
