Water Availability & SustainabilityWater, Water, Everywhere?
Physical water scarcity is where there is physically not enough water to meet all demands, including that needed for ecosystems to function effectively.
Economic water scarcity is a type of water scarcity caused by a lack of money being spent/money available to spend on obtaining water. The water may be there, but the money or tools to access it is not. It may also have to do with insufficient infrastructure to keep up with the demand for water resulting in people often having to fetch water from rivers or lakes for domestic and agricultural uses.
