Answers to Cyprus' water shortage considered

Oct 29 2008 Read 700 Times

As Greece continues to supply water to parched Cyprus on a daily basis, one article considers the consequences and what the country can do in the future to tackle its shortages.

Cyprus' drought, brought about by three dry winters and a lack of rain during springtime, has seen Grecian organisation Eydap agree to provide the country with a total of eight million cubic metres of water, reported ft.com.

However, these deliveries will last only until December and without it, says senior water engineer at the Water Development Board Kyriakos Kyrou, "Cyprus would not be able to survive".

Currently, proposals to tackle the problem include the possibility of implementing two more desalination units in the country, as well as the utilising of a water pipeline between Turkey and Cyprus.

Last week, the European Union proposed to help Cyprus tackle its drought by considering granting the country 7.6 million euros (£5.9 million), relayed xinhuanet.com.
