Background

Background:

Water situation in India over the last few years has reached an alarming level. It can be rightly assumed that the next major war can happen over water.

The world's second-most populous country is running out of water, and waiting for the next monsoon isn’t the answer.

About 100 million people across India are on the front lines of a nationwide water crisis. A total of 21 major cities are set to run out of groundwater by 2020, according to a 2018 report by NITI Aayog.

In 2019 alone, the much-needed monsoon rains arrived weeks late, amid a heatwave that killed at least 137 people over the summer.

Once the wettest place on Earth, even Cherrapunji, has faced a drought each winter for the past few years. Kerala, which got devastating floods in 2018, saw its wells run dry soon after.
