The Middle East and North Africa region is the most water scarce region of the world. The region is home to 6.3 percent of world’s population but has access to measly 1.4 percent of the world’s renewable fresh water.
The region has the highest per capita rates of freshwater extraction in the world (804 m3/year) and currently exploits over 75 percent of its renewable water resources. Due to burgeoning population and rapid economic growth, the per capita water availability is expected to reduce to alarming proportions in the coming decades. By the year 2050, two-thirds of MENA countries could have less than 200 m3 of renewable water resources per capita per year.

"It's a mystery even marine biologists can't solve: Why are rare sea turtles washing ashore on the coast of British Columbia?
In the last three weeks, two green sea turtles and an olive ridley sea turtle have been found on beaches on the west side of Vancouver Island, near Tofino. Two of the turtles have died but staff at the Vancouver Aquarium are still trying to revive the green turtle found this week.
Scientists believe the turtles were in the region when a sudden cold snap hit, preventing them from returning to warmer waters.
A threatened tropical species, the turtles somehow strayed from their warmer habitats near Hawaii and Mexico.
Lisa Spaven, a marine mammal biologist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, told The Canadian Press that the turtles sometimes forage in B.C. waters in late summer. But they are unable to withstand temperatures colder than 14 degrees Celsius.
When the water gets too cold, they enter into a coma-like state.
Scientists have hooked up the latest stranded turtle to an EKG machine in the hopes of detecting a heartbeat once it is warmed up.
The rare breed of turtle can live for up to 100 years."
Eating raw oysters in the summertime is always risky; aqueous pathogens peak when the ocean is warm, which is part of why folk wisdom suggests one should only eat raw shellfish in months with an “R” in the name.

Dilemmas of a Water, Sanitation and Health Funder Circle of Blue WaterNews That historic moment also served to underscore some of the dilemmas that I and other WASH (clean water, sanitation, and hygiene) funders grapple with.
Since 1992 the U.N. has tried to bring attention to the quality of our Earth's water, but how bad is it really? - With much of the Earth's surface covered in water, 70 percent to be exact, it's hard to imagine that there could ever be a problem with water shortages, much less such scarcity that a global security issue has been shaped. According to the United Nations, 783 million people do not have access to clean water, almost 2.5 billion do not have access to adequate sanitation, and 6 to 8 million people die annually from the consequences of disasters and water-related disease.
