  • Climate change is a time bomb with an already set-off timer, making water resource management more critical than ever before. It's no rocket science that water conservation allows water to be transported from areas of excess to areas of drought, if an effective distribution channel can be established between the areas of source and demand. Given that fresh water resources are increasingly becoming scarce, better local water usage, particularly in agriculture, can result in significant water savings. As existing water supplies are disrupted by climate change, water resource conservation and management are critical for survival and sustainability of mankind. Need of the hour is experts and specialists in natural resource preservation who can mitigate this severe situation.
