Description: " As a primary social and financial resource, water has the power to destroy, and to create. The Figures for water loss are staggering. Within seven years, from 2003 to 2010, parts of Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran lost 144 cubic kilometers stored fresh water. Two billion people live in areas where drinking water is constantly reduced, while the number is expected to rise to five billion by 2025. The drought, which aggravates the observed global warming and which unfortunately is expected to intensify in the coming years, already estimated to have cost the lives of 1.8 million people annually worldwide, particularly because of inadequate water consumption."
