Why Do We Urgently Require Rainwater Harvesting in India?

We exist on this Earth because of water. It is one of the key elements of our survival. Due to rapid urbanization, unsustainable agriculture practices, and industrialization, our water demand has been increasing drastically and we are moving towards water scarcity. Research reveals that the availability of water annually per capita has diminished by 75% from 1947 to 2021. The way we overly use 85% of fresh water in agriculture raised the condition of crisis in many states, including Hyderabad, Bangalore, Haryana, Gujarat, and more.
