Analysis of nature of water crisis across the world and the possible remedies


Arindam Mishra

The concept of analysis of the Anthropocene’s past and future is divided with conflicts over the usage and formulation of natural resources that the beings of Earth have been exploiting to their advantage. Water being the key to humanity and other earthlings’ survival has put into perspective the true nature of these abundant yet rare resources that the human race is quickly running out of, or is it? When the water resources of a city or state fall below what is required for its residents and subsequently is forced to make the taps run dry, this is when they are forced to declare a ‘Day Zero’. Is this a phenomenon that will become regular or is it an artificial shortage caused by reasons of policy and nature; are the answers we aim to find in the course of the paper. This paper will additionally try to investigate and analyse the structural changes and agility of two of the cities that faced such disaster, how they identified, reacted, and prevented the taps from going dry. The analysis of the above will lead us to discuss possible solutions such as planned communities, lower wastage policies and water taxation.
