Serious water crisis in Libya in coming years warned

Tripoli, Aug 19 (Prensa Latina) Libya will face a serious water crisis in the coming years due to the increase in human consumption and its limited reserves, a report warned on Friday.

According to an analysis by the Center for Libyan Strategic Studies, the per capita proportion of renewable water in this country is one of the lowest globally and threatens 4.4 million people.

The research revealed that this North African nation faces an annual water deficit estimated at 500 million cubic meters.

Ninety-five percent of the water consumed in Libya comes from subway sources and especially from the so-called artificial river, a network of pipes that transports water from the immense fossil deposits located under the Sahara desert to the main cities.

Despite this mega-project, which cost 25 to 30 billion dollars, the country faces the risk of shortages due to the infrastructure maintenance problems, the text stated.
