Prolonged droughts and soil degradation will continue to aggravate existing water scarcities rendering life in the desert even more difficult for its inhabitants. Climate change will exacerbate water shortage, negatively impacting regional agricultural systems. By 2025, 1.8 billion people will experience "absolute water stress," threatening water security worldwide, especially in arid regions.
Desalination-solar hybrid system treatment, reuse and treatment of wastewater, water saving precision irrigation, generation of water from air humidity and advanced systems for drought forecasting are just a few of the solutions needed.
