  1. 1. Student: Omar Abdulla Al Shehhi (S950003331)Course: LSC 1503Section: Academic Spoken Communication-CLMSection Instructor: Headley Butterfiled,07th Jan, 2013 1

  3. 3. Persistent water shortages are driving creative thinking about the water 3
  4. 4. Different countries in the world are in terms of its share of thefresh water on Earth, with an estimated share of each country,including experiencing the rain. The State like England isreceiving a great deal of rain water year after year. So, wealthof multiple freshwater, rivers, lakes and groundwater stores.While a country like Saudi Arabia, receives little rainfall,making it one of the poorest countries in the sources of freshwater.The quantities of heavy rain on the globe, but this precipitationare uneven. If this amount of rain precipitation evenly on theglobe, for all regions received a quantity of water, nearly 86 cmper year. In general, the most populous regions of the worldpopulated by enough rain falls each year, such as Europe andSouth East Asia, and Eastern United States, India, and China. 4
  5. 5. In other words, Yemen is facing a full blown water crisis. 5
  6. 6. But more than half of the land, dry areas do not drop it rarelyrains, like the majority of Asia, and Central Australia, andmost of North Africa, the Middle East. These areas suffer froma continuing shortage of water resources, as a result ofexperiencing what little rain water. Added to this, that someareas with sufficient resources from the rain may be exposedin some years, or seasons, to a severe lack of rain, whichexposes them to risks of water shortages and drought, ashappened in the eighties in Argentina, Australia, Brazil,Ethiopia, and many other countries. 6
  7. 7. “Water is definitely a security problem in the region.”(Tariq.S, June 2010).The main reason of the shortage of the waters over the world isthe population growth and lack of justice in the distribution ofwater, citizen in North America consumes about 500 liters ofwater a day, and European consumes between 200 and 300liters, while not available for African only 10 to 20 liters ofwater a day. In addition to widespread poverty and insufficientinvestment, if we didn’t do anything to solve the shortage of thewater so it will lead to the desertification of many areas & a lotof poor country also people will die at the end.In my study case I had selected The Republic of Yemen andcapital is Sana, which is located in Western Asia, occupying thesouthwestern to southern to southern end of the ArabianPeninsula. It is bordered by Saudi Arabia to the north, the RedSea to the west and Oman to the east. 7
  8. 8. Women walk home after filling water in their buckets in Sanaa, Yemen 8
  9. 9. That 85 percent of the population of Yemens 25 million peoplewill face more challenges in the next two decades due to theproblem of water shortages.The estimation of underground water reserves available in allwater basins in the country about 20 billion cubic meters.The average current consumption of water in Yemen, whichreaches 3.4 billion cubic meters annually and the country, willgo through a severe crisis of unprecedented water scarcity by2025, pointing out that Yemens per capita water representsonly 3 percent of per capita water ranked globally.Yemen from countries where there are no rivers in progressand depends entirely and the adoption of groundwater andrainwater in the first place The amount of rain in the centralregion 400-1100 mm in the coastal areas have more than 100mm per year has decreased quantity in some seasons. Thecountry depends almost entirely on about 45 thousand wellsrun out of water quickly. 9
  10. 10. Proposed solutions to the problem of water in Yemen and facethe expected decrease of water resources in the country shouldbe long term not for short term as the following points:-Through proper planning, find new sources of drinking waterby desalination of saline water that fills the seas; find apurification of wastewater and reuse, expansion in the creationof networks connected to safe drinking water and sewagenetworks.Direction and guidance of all citizens to enable them to takeadvantage of the rain water that can be used in manyapplications.The shortage of water will be life or death unless the access ofthe current state of attrition to the viable use of water and makethe most of available resources economically and socially andprovide water resources to the maximum amount of sectors ofsociety and finding solutions to those elements. 10
