Résumé
The water crisis of the last decades in countries similar to Iran is the consequence of three different phenomena : (1)Water shortage caused by insufficient natural precipitation in the region, and the shortage of per capita water potential. This shortage is further aggravated as population continues to grow. (2) Climatic changes due to greenhouse effect, intensifying droughts, altering the period and the amount of rainfall in the region, resulting in many negative consequences especially in our region. It should be pointed however that successive droughts from distant past in Iran have caused irreparable damage to natural and human ecosystem. (3) Damage and depletion of the country’s water resources as result of decrease in the level of ground water put basins on the verge of destruction. The ever-increasing pollution of surface and ground waters has impeded the trend of replenishment of resources. In addition to drawing attention to the dangers prevailing the present undesirable situation, the book offers remedial measures of overcome existing difficulties and create a sustainable equilibrium between resources and consumptions. In this context, while assessing the current situation and describing the opportunities and threats, new policies, strategies and action plans are presented based on an extensive research, necessary references as well as the collection of personal experiences.
