Abstract:Water Scarcity has been argued to be one of the fastest growing pandemics of the world currently. The purpose of this qualitative study was to determine the relationship between the awareness of water scarcity in Transnational Nigerians and if it effects their willingness to contribute to water scarcity relief efforts in Nigeria. The findings in the study support the assertion that there is a high level of awareness of water scarcity but the priority of water scarcity seems to be a secondary issue to the electrical supply, which is deemed to be the primary target of altruism. Theoretical considerations and further implications are discussed.
