Multiple Ways of Assessing Threats to Water: Supply-Side and Demand-Side Problems
There are both supply-side threats and demand-side threats to water necessary to meet human needs; as T. Boone Pickens has been quoted as saying, “Water is the new oil”
One supply-side threat arises from instances in which we are withdrawing freshwater from surface water sources and groundwater aquifers at rates faster than replenishment or recharge
Another supply-side problem is that even if there is enough water, it is not water that is good enough to meet human needs; much of the world’s fresh water is being degraded
Still another supply-side problem is the fact that distinct from physical water scarcity, there is economic scarcity for the global poor
One demand-side concern arises from the fact of an increasing number of people on the planet
Another demand-side problem is that high-demand users sometimes are geographically concentrated in regions that cannot sustain demand levels
Still another demand-side problem arises from technologies that waste more water than alternative technologies
A fourth set of demand-side problems is that demand is often insufficiently restrained because of inadequate price mechanisms and outdated legal rules that set few limits on excessive use
For some detailed general news coverage of water issues, see the 2010 Newsweek story (cover shown in the graphic above), as well as a special issue of National Geographic Magazine in 2010 devoted to a wide range of water issues.
