Water scarcity, the imbalance between supply and demand for freshwater, is a growing global challenge exacerbated by climate change. This article assesses current trends in water scarcity, the factors driving it, and potential solutions for sustainable water management. We analyze the impact of climate change, population growth, and unsustainable water use practices on water availability and accessibility. The article explores various adaptation and mitigation strategies, including integrated water resource management, water conservation technologies, and climate-resilient infrastructure. A call to action for international cooperation and policy reforms is emphasized to address this critical issue effectively.
