Introduction Water is one of the most crucial elements in industry, farming, agriculture and everyday life making life on earth impossible without it. However, there are some regions that this important resource is limited or polluted and are known as arid regions. Certain places are located in all the world and coincide with poor countries such as Latin America, Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa, accounting for 18% of the total. Over the years, these areas have been affected by water shortages as lack of natural rainfall resulting in deficiency of meeting the needs of the growing population. According to UNESCO (2009) about 40% of peoples living in similar districts have suffered problems of water continuously and it is predicted that by 2025 two thirds of the population will live under high stress due to the absence of drinkable water. As opposed in front of obstacles of climate change, pollution and increasing population it would probably be one of the most difficult challenges to be tackled because of a limited science base. This report will explain the current situation of renewable and non-renewable water on specific places and will give two possible techniques for providing fresh water to arid regions.
1. Current situation of water resources in arid regions Chart 1 below illustrates water resources by taking the example of Middle East and North Africa countries, obviously showing that internal and external renewable water is present in the majority part of these…
