Problems and Solutions

What is happening...

In the Middle East two major problems that affect the water availability are the region/climate and the large population. The climate is very dry and the region is practically all desert, so it rarley rains. The population is very large and raises the amount of water used and needed everyday.

Possible Solutions...

Some possible solutions are rain catches and water filers for each household, better management of water usage, and to import freshwater/safe water from other countries.
