Effective use of natural resources is pressing concern. Particularly, water resources for drinking are predicted to be in serious shortage in 2050 due to increase in population and rapid urbanization throughout the world. The beginning of the 21st century is straddled with enormous environmental problems of which water shortage is one of the most serious.

In another report published by OECD, it is stated that a number of people living in river basins will be under severe water stress which is expected to be double in 2050 ..
