How Scarce Does Water Need to Get Before It’s Valuable?

Billions of dollars worth of water infrastructure upgrades are needed in the United States to stop major water losses each year. There will soon be too many people on this planet for everyone to consume as much water as they do today.

Earlier this month, as U.S. newspapers warned of a drought-induced bacon shortage, international scientists cautioned that pending water shortages could result in food shortages of all kinds, urging people to eat fewer water-intensive foods (namely, meat). Everyone seems to agree that water shortages are coming, they could bring with them huge and widespread problems touching everything from food to energy, and that there are business opportunities and risks associated with water, but still nothing seems to have changed since the first headlines touted water as “the new oil” over a decade ago.

The Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) released its Global Water Report today, compiled from information received from 470 investors representing US$50 trillion in assets, and 318 companies listed on the FTSE Global Equity Index Series (Global 500) that operate in sectors which are water-intensive or exposed to water-related risks. The report reveals that although the risks of droughts and floods are clear, and investors are beginning to care more and more about water, corporate boardrooms continue to be slow to move.

Water scarcity not only threatens South Africans but we seem to be following the tend of many countries world wide in turning a partial blind eye toward the matter. Government, business and private home owners are still despondent in addressing the actuality of the situation. It is as if no one can really grasp the extent to which a water scarcity will affect us and thus the tendency is to bury our heads in the sand and hope the issue goes away.

For those who understand the severity of what is looking us straight in the eyes, for several years now, there are steps that you can take to secure the availability of our water supply, no matter how you intend to use it.
