    This is a very serious problem. Even if you ignore global warming there are areas of the world where the supply of potable (drinkable) water is very borderline. Many areas around the Sahara desert are very difficult to inhabit for this reason and due to a combination of reasons, the Sahara is steadily enlarging and forcing the local peoples to migrate; this then causes pressures elsewhere. Australia has experienced a very long standing drought that has had a severe impact on agriculture. In the former Soviet Union, water flowing into the Aral Sea was diverted for agricultural purposes. The sea has now shrunk enormously and destroyed the fishing industry and the communities that relyed on it. This is just a snapshot, but if you add in the effects of Global Warming, this will certainly not make these problems improve.
