Default Water Scarcity: merged thread

Moderator's Note

Thread re-named and several SWJ Blog links added. A strategic issue around the world, although the only articles appear to have a Middle East focus. (Ends).

I'll kick this off with a 29 April 2010 article from Aswat al Iraq regarding the Iraqi Ministry of Water Resources entitled: Iraq signs contract to implement water strategy with Italian companies

BAGHDAD / Aswat al-Iraq: Minister of Water Resources, Abdulatief Jamal Rashied, signed on Thursday implementing strategic study of Iraq’s water and lands resources contract with Italian SGI and MED companies at a cost of $35.8 million, according to a Ministry statement.

“The contract will be implemented within 42 months,” said the statement received by Aswat al-Iraq news agency.

“The long term study represents the future policy of the water situation in Iraq, as it includes a comprehensive plan to develop water resources in Iraq until 2035 through the integrated management of the water resources,” the statement quoted the minister as saying
A google search turns up a possible website for SGI which links to DFS Engineering website

With the challenge of offering a broad range of capabilities, relationships and experience to provide efficient and environmentally sound technologies and sustainable solutions to our Client's needs, DFS merges together the competences of three leading Italian companies:

A google search turns up a possible website for MED which links to the Landi Renzo Group

MED’s market position consolidates rapidly and in 2001 the company joins the Landi Renzo Group, the world’s leading manufacturer of CNG and LPG systems.

With renewed energy MED continues its growth in the field of Alternative Fuel Components: in 2003 with a high-quality CNG tank valve conceived for the OEM market, in 2004 starting the production of specific gas injectors featuring high-repeatability, while in 2007 the company introduces new electronic control units for the management of CNG and LPG driven engines.
