Iran: Running Out Of Water

Via The Iran Project, brief commentary on Iran’s water scarcity crisis:

Water-intensive lifestyle, lack of long-term plans to efficiently use the limited water resources, inadequate investment to develop water infrastructure and sacrificing national interest at the altar of personal gain are among visible reasons why pleas, plans and proposals to use less water across all sectors have not produced the desired results.

Energy Minister Reza Ardakanian made the statement on the sidelines of the first convention on “Water Scarcity Adaptation” in Tehran on Monday, ILNA reported.

He asserted that adapting and adjusting to water scarcity is a key government strategy, assuring that Iran can prevent disasters related to water paucity by mobilizing the major players that can help in accomplishing the declared national objective: using water sustainably.
