Speaking about the dangers of water scarcity, Mizutori gave a stern warning before the report was published: “Thirst is a candidate to become the next pandemic, but unfortunately, the vaccine to cure this pandemic will not be found.”
According to the report, between 1998 and 2017, 1.5 billion people suffered due to the problems caused by the decrease in rains, and the damage it caused to the economy amounted to 124 billion dollars.
Although it is a worldwide problem, drought is mostly effective in Africa, central regions of Asia, southern regions of Australia, Europe and America, and water shortages will continue to increase significantly.
