    Scarcity does not mean a shortage in economics. It means that the marginal utility of water will be higher and increasing, which might be the same as a diamond. So the use of water might have to be recalculated. For example, it might not so useful to grow rice, but a vegetable.

    Sounds like homework, so I'll give you tips, but not the answer.

    Pretend you are a farmer in a place that hasn't had rain for months. What's going to start happening to the plants, the animals, you and your family?

    Almost any problem you can think of can somehow be traced back to lack of clean water, where that is the limiting factor. The most obvious are agriculture and most diseases.
