The Global Risks 2015 report listed the water crisis as the number one global risk factor based on the potential impact to society and the risk for widespread devastation (World Economic Forum, 2015). Discuss the significance of poor access to clean/potable water and adequate sanitation. Why is the water crisis a global issue and not simply a local or regional concern? Also comment on the recent water crisis in the city of Flint, Michigan in comparison or contrast to other water issues around the world.
