Presently this problem is primarily a third world problem. However, the UN report and other ancillary reports mentions that England faces serious water shortages and the United States is not far behind England. Even the Defense Intelligence Agencyhas clearly echoed the dire warnings of the United Nations report by stating that unstable water supplies will greatly impact all and water will subsequently be used as weapon.

Much has been written about the past wars that have been fought over oil (e.g. Gulf War 1), the wars that are presently being fought over oil (e.g. Arab Spring) and the wars which will be fought over oil (e.g. Syria and Iran). What is missing from most conversations is that the wars of the future will be fought over water, leaving oil as a secondary consideration.
According to the United Nations research and scientific studies, nearly two-thirds of the entire population inhabiting the planet will face severe, life-threatening water shortages by the year 2025. The reasons most often cited for the water shortages are waste and poor planning which will result in uneven distribution.
