What about water resources? If freshwater supplies become tight, won't we just desalinate salt water from the ocean?

1.

Yes, that is the last option and it will be comparatively easy for India since we have Bay of Bengal on the East and Arabian Sea on the west of India.
Gulf states are already doing it on massive scale.

This option can be considered only when we find fresh water becomes a scare thing in our country, because of cost involved in desalination of sea water.

1. As it incurs Prohibitive Expense, it is made viable Commercially only rarely in emergency purposes.
2. Moreover Rainwater Harvesting has started in many Multi-storied Buildings' roofs whc0h is handy for Wash Water etc if not for Drinking purposes at all times !! .
