The processes involved in water cycle include; precipitation, evaporation, condensation, and melting. The water cycle is affected by various environmental, climatic changes, such as increasing global temperature, changes in the wind pattern. These environment conditions thereby affect, the level of water entrapped in solid form, the rising ocean level and the prevalence of rainfall; which directly affect the availability of water to the population (Huntington, 2006).
