Drinking Water - The Ganges
The BBC reported "the world's supply of fresh water is running out. Already one person in five has no access to safe drinking water".
The most sacred Hindu river, the Ganges, is so depleted that the Sundarban wetlands in India and the mangrove forests of Bangladesh are seriously threatened. It is also said to contain unacceptable levels of arsenic. As more trees are chopped down and more buildings erected along its banks, the glaciers supplying the river have been melting, rising the fears of shortages and drought downstream.
The river has been the subject of a long-running dispute between India and Bangladesh, although recently progress has been made in resolving the conflict.
