Abstract: Over the centuries, owing to the significance of water for the sustenance of life on Earth, the transition from utilizing to exploiting it escalated rather quickly. We are in an era that’s facing the worst water crisis across the globe and just a few decades away from reaching an inflection point where most of the world will be confronting its “Day Zero” due to lack of water. The rate of consumption of water has been increasing exponentially over time and eventually depleting the freshwater reserves. According to a 2016 research article published by Mesfin M. Mekonnen and Arjen Y. Hoekstra, 4 billion people face water scarcity at least one month a year with half a billion facing severe water scarcity throughout the year. Besides irresponsible exploitation, water scarcity is an unfortunate consequence of changing climatic conditions. With the rising global temperatures, the melting glacial water returns to the dynamic water cycle. The increased rate of evaporation leads to an increased amount of water vapour, a potent greenhouse gas, in the atmosphere. These gasses trap the heat of the Earth within its atmosphere, leading to further increase in temperature & this vicious cycle continues.
