Too much water would submerge human settlements and destroy livelihoods and properties; too little of it would result to drought in already arid areas.

There are people and places that may seem less prone to these impacts. However, they already encounter another water problem. For them, access to clean and potable water has been for a long time and still remain a problem. Compound this by climate change impacts and it can lead to a water crisis.
