In some parts of the world, water for drinking and cooking is so expensive that people cannot get it and die.

I think what you mean is that there are some parts of the world where some people have so little money that they cannot get water for drinking and cooking and they die.

Worrying about water shortage because people can't afford water makes as much sense as opening a BYD (electric car) dealership in places where people can't afford the gasoline for their cars.

What is the matter with you?

Where are these people supposed to walk to (no money for cars, bus tickets, etc.) to get their water? What if the people with the water will not let them in? Do you think, for example, that Israel will let the Palestinians in even for a drink of water? What if they are too weak from thirst and starvation to walk that far, even if they know where that is?
