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.

When subsistance argriculture is crushed to the point that life does not go on, I think your remarks trivialize an extremely serious problem.

The bigger problem would be thinking the solution is water when it is money. Or rather the distribution of water.
