We may live on a “blue planet,” but less than 3% of all of our water is 
fresh, and much of it is inaccessible (for example, because it is locked 
in glaciers). Since 1960, the amount of available fresh water per capita 
has declined by more than half, leaving over 40% of the world’s 
population facing water stress. By 2030, demand for fresh water will 
exceed supply by an estimated 40%.
