WASHINGTON August 6, 2019: Nearly a quarter of the world's population lives in 17 countries facing extremely high water stress, close to "day zero" conditions when the taps run dry, according to a report released Tuesday.

The World Resources Institute's Aqueduct Water Risk Atlas ranked water stress, drought risk and riverine flood risk using a peer-reviewed methodology.

"Agriculture, industry, and municipalities are drinking up 80% of available surface and groundwater in an average year" in the 17 worst affected countries, WRI said.
"When demand rivals supply, even small dry shocks – which are set to increase due to climate change – can produce dire consequences" such as the recent crises in Cape Town, Sao Paulo and Chennai.

Qatar, Israel, Lebanon, Iran, Jordan, Libya, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Eritrea, UAE, San Marino, Bahrain, India, Pakistan, Turkmenistan, Oman and Botswana made up the top 17.

"Water stress is the biggest crisis no one is talking about. Its consequences are in plain sight in the form of food insecurity, conflict and migration, and financial instability," said Andrew Steer, CEO of WRI.

Another 27 countries comprised the "high baseline water stress" list and a full list can be found here: https://www.wri.org/our-work/project/aqueduct/

The Middle East and North Africa are home to 12 of the most stressed countries, while India, which is ranked 13, has more than three times the population of the other 16 in its category combined.

"The recent water crisis in Chennai gained global attention, but various areas in India are experiencing chronic water stress as well," said Shashi Shekhar.

India's former water secretary, adding that the tool could help authorities identify and prioritize risks.

Even countries with low average water stress can have dire hotspots, the report found. While the US ranks a comfortable 71 on the list, the state of New Mexico faces water stress on par with the UAE.

WaterMicronWorld International-New Innovative Product, Atmospheric water from the air available on the planet today, directly from the same air we breathe. Water Generator Technology provides the freshest, cleanest, and purest drinking It’s applicable to a wide range of markets. “Our product is a household/office based unit that makes pure drinking water from the air up to 30 liters per day purer than any source on the planet. 

WaterMicronWorld International Atmospheric Water Generators capable of producing 15, 30, 60, 100, 200, 250, 500, 1000, 1,200, 3,000 and up to 5,000 liters in a single day from the air we breathe. 

“Our strategic plan is to supply pure drinking water for industry applications, e.g. irrigation, aquaculture etc…”

The strategic competitive advantages are its performance and cost advantages Technology. Atmospheric Water Generator is a humidity and temperature driven machine that makes water from air. 
This means the machine depends on the level of humidity in the air and the temperature to produce pure drinking water. Ideally, the humidity level should be at least 25% or above to achieve the machines maximum performance.

In regions with lower humidity levels, the machine will manufacture pure drinking water at a lesser capacity than in regions with high levels of humidity. The period of time to achieve optimal water production is directly related to humidity. 

As an example, in a household environment, higher levels of humidity tends to be around kitchens or any spacious room. The Atmospheric Water Generator works by converting the humidity in the air to pure drinking water. 

The units also act as an effective dehumidifier and in areas with high humidity the unit not only acts as a perfect pure drinking water generator but it also works to condition and dehumidify the air within the specific environment where the unit is placed. 

A simple design, smaller size and low-pressure operation also provide a substantial cost advantage in production. 

These performance and cost advantages are sustainable in the short to medium term as a result of the intellectual property protection built around the technology. 

The Government will spend large amounts towards Pure Drinking Water.
