Iran's Water Bankruptcy Blamed on Mismanagement

While climate change is said to have exacerbated Iran's already prevailing water shortage, experts maintain it is the absence of proper management of resources that has plunged the country into a state of water bankruptcy. 
Official data show that the average rate of precipitation in the country has been on the decline for at least ten years. The climatic changes are obvious and easily perceptible by ordinary citizens as previously snow-abundant winters are replaced by periods of cold but dry weather. 
However, experts emphasize that the changes would not have resulted in a crisis had development plans been devised in accordance with the climatic trends and the ecological capacities of Iran's geographical area.
