Lloyd's 360 Risk Insight report: Water security, like food and energy security, is one of the biggest challenges facing humanity.

At a time when TV screens and newspapers are filled with images of flooding, and with growing evidence of rising sea levels linked to climate change, it is all to easy to ignore water scarcity as a major global issue.
