This is a final research paper for a class called Social Justice In the City. Overall this class focused on themes like urban planning, management, and care for residents in cities in general.

You must use at least 3 academic sources for the paper, in addition to any books and readings used in class. Academic sources come from academic journals and books. Web sites do not constitute academic sources, although you may use relevant organizational web sites, newspaper articles, or popular books in addition to the 3 academic sources listed in your paper. I encourage you to use more than 3 sources. You need to cite your sources appropriately throughout the paper, and to provide a clear bibliography at the end of the paper. The paper should follow a clear and organized format. You need to begin with an introduction, which describes the main thesis of your paper, including the subject or problem that it addresses. The papers thesis should be supported with arguments, evidence, and examples from your sources in the body of the paper. The paper should end with a conclusion that restates your findings.
The topic of this paper is Water scarcity and sustainability in global cities.
Clean Water Scarcity and Sustainability in major cities throughout the world has become an impending threat and if goes unaddressed without a plan in place for the near future, many of these cities could face a multitude of consequences that will be detrimental to the current and future health of their residents. However, many cities have already faced some of these consequences and are starting to find many successes by implementing new strategies and working with cities throughout the world.
