The water crisis in Iran
Iran, July 4, 2018 – Economy experts are describing the severe water shortage crisis in Iran as one of this country’s super challenges, highlighting the scope and importance of this subject.
Among 116 countries Iran is ranked 14th in the water crisis.
Kerman Province in the south-central region of Iran is known for its pistachio farms, especially in the cities of Kerman, Rafsanjan, and Sirjan. Pistachio production has dropped by more than 50 percent while this province used to provide more than 80 percent of Iran’s pistachios. Estimates indicate pistachio farming in Kerman Province will fall to zero in the next decade.
The regime’s own Mehr news agency reports less than 40 percent of Iran’s 66 large dams to have water these days. Furthermore, more than 80 percent of the country’s wetlands have dried, now becoming fountains of enormous dust storms across the country.
In Tehran, more than 200 women gynecologists held a protest in Tehran against the unscientific, mandatory promotion of natural delivery. The protest took place outside the Medical System Building in North Kargar Ave. in Tehran.
On the same day, a group of volunteers who participated in the college entrance exam to become assistant physicians or dentists held a protest outside the Ministry of Health. They were protesting the results announced for the tests and implementation of the new quotas which include 65 per cent of all admissions.
Iran women played an active role in recent days in the protests held by various sectors of Iranian society in different cities.
On Tuesday, July 3, 2018 in Mashhad, in a protest held by clients of Pardisban Company in Koohsangi, Iran women played an active role. Swindled men and women demanded clarification of the status of their deposits. Since four years ago, no government official has taken action to respond to their demands.
