Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
Fresh water in rivers is only 0.01% of the water available on the earth and provides 80% of the water for human beings on earth. The 80 countries in the developing world that support 40% of the world’s population suffer, however, from water shortage problems that have become a daily fact of life. Consequently, 1.2 billion people are suffering physically from water shortages and, 1.8 billion lack adequate sanitation. Future predictions suggest that there will be 37 countries in 2025 with a shortage of water for all needs. More shortages are expected, and half of the world’s population is expected to live in water stressed areas by 2025. This is mainly due to climate change, population growth rates and development. This Special Issue will address these problems and highlight possible solutions.
