Unbearable heat waves with extreme drought and temperatures so high that they are barely fit for human life and all living things in the Middle East. Many rivers and lakes could get worse and will disappear altogether. They are becoming uninhabitable in the future.
With extreme heatwaves and the temperature rising so high, if there is rainfall, they will evaporate quickly. We saw that the extreme rainfall in other parts of the world turned into heavy floods like those happening in the U.S., China, Germany, Belgium, Japan, Korea, India and etc.. These heavy floods will be a major problem for the Middle East region. This is really a big climate change issue.”
Global warming, a major driver of water scarcity in the first place. These changes are not only having an impact on the amount of water available, they are also affecting quality. As the climate continues to warm and water runs scarce, part of the solution in the Middle East will have to involve reducing water usage, water consumption and use in agriculture. All living things and humans depend on more water to ensure food security and for daily life. We need more funding to figure out how to resolve these urgent matters from the rest of the world to deal with this increased demand for water.
UNICEF also warns millions and millions of the whole Middle East region face extreme water shortages now and in the foreseeable future.
