A range of concepts relative to water scarcity are discussed in this chapter. Natural scarcity resulting from arid and semi-arid climates and drought is one issue, and a second is man-made scarcity which is associated with desertification and water shortage due to poor management. Separation of these two causes brings into focus the effects of both water quality and water quantity on water scarcity. An introductory discussion of the respective water management issues and implications for sustainable development are consequently presented.
