New Workgroup to Help Tackle Water Shortage

A national workgroup to tackle water shortage will be established by mid-March, the managing director of Iran Water Resources Management Company said on Monday.
“In the past, we tried to confront drought, but we should now admit that Iran has to move toward adapting itself to water shortage,” Mohammad Haj-Rasouliha was also quoted as saying by ILNA.
According to the official, the Department of Environment and Management and Planning Organization of Iran, as well as agriculture, industries and interior ministries will be the members of the workgroup, with the Energy Ministry leading the new entity.
Stressing that the workgroup’s duty will not be limited to policymaking, the official noted that it will oversee the provincial plans on adapting to water scarcity and help them materialize those projects.
