This map illustrates the number of months each year in which more than half of the available water is being depleted for human use.  Areas in orange and red are experiencing serious water shortages.  Half of all cities with populations >100,000 are located in water-scarce basins. (Map reproduced from Richter and others, 2013. Tapped out: how can cities secure their water future? Water Policy 15 (2013) 335–363).
