Baku, Azerbaijan, Feb. 2
By Fatih Karimov - Trend: Iran is ready to use Germany's experience in water management.
Iran's Deputy Energy Minister Rahim Meidani said that considering the special situation of water resources in Iran and the occurrence of drought in recent years, improvement of water consumption in the agricultural sector is among priorities in the country, Iran's Energy Ministry website reported Feb. 2.
Meidani made the remarks in a meeting with German Ambassador to Tehran Michael Freiherr von Ungern-Sternberg.
The German ambassador for his part said that German companies are implementing different economic projects in Iran, but their participation in Iran's water management projects is not considerable.
Iran is located in an arid zone and the country has been repeatedly faced with drought in the past 40 years.
However the Islamic Republic is not the only country in the region faced with drought.
Iran's water crisis is not just a result of drought. It is direct consequence of mismanagement in last 30 year. The Islamic Republic has not taken any serious steps towards projects such as seawater desalination or increasing the water usage efficiency.
