MEK Iran : Mismanage of Water and soil Devastate Iran
Investing in food self-sufficiency, which led to unregulated and unsustainable agricultural development, was the most major and detrimental axis of water resource mismanagement in Iran. This unwise policy has resulted in the unregulated abstraction of surface and groundwater resources, development subsidence, and the destruction of a significant portion of the country’s sources of water.
The regime failed to achieve food and self-sufficiency
However, an examination of official statistics and information reveals that not only has the regime failed to achieve food and agricultural self-sufficiency in recent years, but that, as a result of the spread of poverty, inflation, and unemployment, people’s purchasing power has plummeted, putting their food security in jeopardy more than ever.
When compared to the crisis of quantitative and qualitative soil resources, the crisis of quantitative and qualitative water resources is almost nothing.
Because the water quality and quantity crisis can be rectified by spending a lot of money and importing water or desalinating saltwater, among other things, but very precious soil resources are being eroded every year as a result of the regime’s mismanagement. And the remaining soil is being cruelly salted, which cannot be compensated under any circumstances, and will, in the end, destroy the land, civilization, and life.
Water is a critical need that the regime ignore it
International authorities underline that in order to achieve sustainable development, all economic, political, and social factors must be balanced through effective governance. The regime, on the other hand, is primarily concerned with its own harmful economic aims, which has resulted in imbalanced development.
The worst result is that the mullahs are suddenly making the country dependent on foreign countries after 42 years, because water is a critical need that the regime cannot ignore, and projects will add a significant amount of costs to the country’s shattered economy. For example, to bring water into the country from the south, a pipeline of at least 500 kilometers is required, which comes at a high cost to the government and extends the project’s implementation period.
To minimize environmental damage, seawater desalination systems should be powered by renewable energy, however, Iran falls behind the southern Gulf countries in terms of renewable energy development.
Industry in the country’s crisis-affected areas
According to the regime’s fifth and sixth five-year growth plans, the government was intended to launch roughly 10,000 megawatts of renewable energy, nonetheless, the total amount of renewable energy created in the last ten years has not even reached 1,000 megawatts. Which is an indication of the regime’s nuclear project’s capital waste, as well as growing cynicism about the regime’s nuclear goals.
The repercussions of a severe reduction in groundwater levels and the development of subsidence are one of the country’s largest potential concerns that haven’t been discussed yet.
Currently, the Ministry of Energy is putting up every effort to offer the water resources required for drinking, agriculture, and industry in the country’s crisis-affected areas, but it is not considering balancing aquifers or supplying groundwater reservoirs to slow subsidence.
