To revive the desiccated Urmia Lake $250 million will be allocated in the next fiscal year that will start in March 2020, the first vice president said.
“The government is determined to restore the troubled lake. We want to ensure that what led to the ecological disaster will not happen again,” Eshaq Jahangiri was quoted as saying by ISNA.
Drawing on international experience should be a priority in whatever decisions are made to help revive the lake, he stressed.
“The experience of reviving the lake in the past six years can be used to help restore other water bodies (like Zayandehroud) in the central provinces that are on the verge of desiccation.”
