Bangladesh is one of the countries most vulnerable to climate change. Extreme weather events there . Water resources are natural resources of water that are potentially useful. Uses of water include agricultural, industrial, household, recreational and environmental activities. All living things require water to grow and reproduce. 97% of the water on the Earth is salt water and only three percent is fresh water; slightly over two thirds of this is frozen in glaciers and polar ice caps.

{, } This will intensify competition for water among agriculture, ecosystems. In South Asia, around million people live in areas of high water scarcity; in East and Southeast Asia the number is about million.

In Central Asia, North Africa and West Asia, about one-fifth of the population live in agricultural areas with very high water shortages or scarcity. "Contributing Towards a Water Secure South Asia" South Asia is endowed with vast water resources, yet the struggles around water scarcity and unequal access are perpetual.

Global processes of urbanization and climate change are further contributing to this profound water insecurity. This challenge demands a holistic and integrated approach.

Climate change also intensifies the competition for water due to the reduction of renewable surface water and groundwater resources in most dry subtropical regions. In urban areas, climate change is projected to increase risks for people, assets, economies, and ecosystems, including risks from heat stress, storms and extreme precipitation.

Climate scientists have been saying all along that one of the primary effects of climate change is the disruption of the water cycle. Since so much of everyday life and planning is determined by hydrological systems, it is important to understand the impact that climate change is having (and will have) on drinking water supplies, sanitation, food and energy production.
