Water supply is also declining worldwide, especially in our region because of the added harsh desert conditions. Extreme measures are to be developed and adopted in order to slow down the ever-increasing use of our water resources. More efficient irrigation equipment and less water-dependent crop and forage species are some of the recommendations from experts.
Additionally, the loss of biodiversity has been identified as a key challenge facing most regions of the world. Raising awareness and educating communities, coupled with proactive measures of protection could go a long way to lessen the pressures on species diversity. Overuse of most of our resources is another challenge that require a comprehensive approach, including strict regulations and appropriate alternatives for those whose lives depend on land and sea harvesting.
