People must be prepare for a serious shortage of water : Isa Kalantar

According to Mikrofonnews Agency (MHA), Isa Kalantar, the head of the Organization for the Environment of Iran, asked people to prepare themselves for facing serious shortage of water in the coming months.

Iran is a semi-dry and semi- desert country, we should be prepare for the consequences of miss-management of water sources in the past 40 year. No one is responsible for the situation we are facing today, but ourselves”, said Isa Kalantar.

As an example, instead of expanding the steel and petrochemical industries on the southern shores of the country, we developed these industries in the center of the country, and in agriculture, instead of using modern irrigation and modernization methods, we wasted lots of water in old-type cultivation with an old system of watering, he said.
