DECLINING GROUNDWATER LEVELS
Groundwater is the largest reservoir of freshwater.
People depend on it for agriculture and their daily lives. Groundwater depletion has become a serious issue for many years, as it is used up faster than it can be recharged by precipitation.
The rate of depletion has more than doubled since 1960.
INCREASING WATER DEMAND
Water demand is projected to increase by 55% globally between 2000 and 2050.
70% of all freshwater resources is used for raising crops and livestock.
