Description

Palestine’s water crisis is one of the biggest environmental issues it faces. In the other side, climate change and the over-consumption of water contributed to the current crisis in many ways. Areas which used to have a variety of agricultural products are now abandoned dry.

Another issue discussed in the video is the pollution of water in the Palestinian land making it not valid for human and livestock drinking. Palestinians request equal opportunity to access drinking water from shared resources with Israel.
