Despite the headlines regarding severe water shortages in Gaza, Israel has made some incredible improvements to their water supply systems. The country could not have achieved their successful water functionality without their unique techniques of conserving water, which is something that many countries, most importantly desert-like countries, should all take note of.
The residents of Israel are well-trained professionals that may have solved the water crisis. On their end, anyhow.
What the rest of the world does with their innovative progress in technology, is 100% entirely up to them.
With a world war crisis on the incline, the next decade promises even more water shortages in the entire world, which is a rather scary thought.
Though, more in reality, water shortages could lead to many global problems. It has even been predicted that the final war will be about water, which makes the entire topic of humanity a rather big problem.
Now, of course, the water crisis is due to, apart from a lack of water management, climate change. It doesn’t matter what caused the problem, as there isn’t something we can necessarily do to reverse it. However, the catastrophic effects of climate change will have to be addressed, which is why more attention is being placed on Israel.
Desalination and Israel
Some of Israel’s most innovation-driven projects, the process of desalinating seawater to fresh drinking water, has helped the entire country have access to a reliable, clean and purified source of drinking water all year around.
Israel has been described as becoming the global leader, with regards to the water sphere and has created an entire water-tech driven export industry, which reached over $2.2 billion in just 2013, which has increased even more in the past five years.
By adopting the same innovations as Israel, desert-based countries, such as Egypt, Abu Dhabi and even non-desert countries facing a water-struggle could majorly benefit from such water systems.
