Water Crisis Persists

The energy ministry’s deputy head of planning and economic affairs confirmed that water shortage will continue to affect the country for the next 30 years, Eghtesad news reported on Monday. Evaporation of water due to global warming along with a reduction in rainfall over the past 6 months are among the reasons why the current Iranian calendar year (started March 21) is expected to be the driest compared to the past few years. Official statistics indicate a 15 percent decrease in the amount of rainfalls over the past six and a half months, and a 20 percent reduction in the water flow into dams, since the beginning of the current water year.
