It's crucial to keep in mind that the specific challenges and responses to the water crisis in 2030 would depend on regional and local circumstances, making it necessary for stakeholders to tailor their approaches accordingly.

The day is not that far when big and rich organizations will play like GOD and make huge amounts of money in the name of the water crisis.

Respectfully I recognize the dangers and pitfalls one encounters when painting with a BROAD BRUSH.

Though I do not claim expertize in water equity or water efficiency ... to date all those CORPORATE formed markets have proven to be highly lucrative but hardly models of honorable equity or efficiency ... perhaps the author might provide us with names and locates where this equity and efficiency is clearly visible.

Respectfully,

David Zetland

McKinsey is just trolling for business...

@Paul -- don't demonize markets. They are often better than bureaucrats (and politicians!) at delivering equity and efficiency...

PAUL F MILLER

Paper: Global Water Shortage in 2030 = Excellent Business Opportunities ... perhaps I misread the intent of this writing and it is meant to be a form of parody and if so I stand corrected before I begin.

It strikes me that as long as “we” (that’s you and me) choose to see WATER as a commodity for sale to the highest bidder the author is correct and there are now and will continue to be excellent bu$$ine$$ opportunities for a select few in the coming years.

How the vast majority will fare under such an elitist arrangement is a matter of appreciable speculation, however, I doubt the “defined” average American will be living as luxuriously as he is today. And doubtless as a result of this increase privatization of WATER the divisions and polarization between people based on any number factors, colors, creed, language, education, locale will be heightened by WATER owners to further enlist fear “they” are out to get you water.

Promoting increased privatization of WATER is, in my estimation, a dangerous path to encourage and a slippery slope to follow.
