Water scarcity as a result of a changing environment is not the only concern. Recent studies on groundwater sustainability show that the largest aquifers in the world are undergoing, or will undergo, severe overdrafts that are not long-term sustainable. To adapt for such as critical scenarios and to cope with their consequences, appropriate management and governance of water resources are needed.
