Renewable fresh water resources of selected countries, 1995 All the countries in the above table are from very different parts of the world thus meaning they all have completely different climates. Countries such as Brazil are in the tropics so they receive lots of rain, there is a large rain forest situated in Brazil. Canada and Norway are both very close to the artic circle (some bits of these countries are actually in the artic circle).
Large amounts of water are required in these countries for things such as heating to go about normal life. Lots of the richer countries (especially in the northern hemisphere) may waste a lot of water by the pure and simple fact that they can afford to do so. Countries like the UK and Canada may have big industries that use lots of water, people use more appliances like baths, washing machines, dishwashers and hosepipes regularly.
These are all factors which contribute to a high water usage per person. This high level of water intake is completely opposite to that of a country in Africa like Egypt. Egypt has a dry baron landscape, most of it is desert. People have to be very cautious with the amounts of water that they use. The demand for water in the world is only going to increase as the worlds population gets bigger. The lower economically developed countries populations are increasing at a large rate and more and more people are moving to the urban areas to seek simple commodities such as fresh water.

As many areas of the world have shortage of water planners need to think about how they can get water into these areas. Only a few percent of the worlds water is fresh (drinkable) water. New canals could be built from existing rivers to areas that are water deprived. Other ways of getting water would be to extract sea water and then purify it then supply it to the areas via pipes. Purifying water would be a costly venture and over ground pipes are unattractive but cheaper than underground pipes, many charities provide purification tablets to people in Africa and other poor countries around the world but this is extremely expensive. I believe the most efficient way for people to access fresh drinking water would to be dig deep underground to find fresh water.
Pumps could be built to bring this water to the surface.
