This is not a scoop: Arab countries are the most exposed to the lack of water resources.
However, international organizations, NGOs and states continue to raise the alarm year after year.
Beyond the alarming figures, there are stories of suffering, demonstrations, wars, famine and migration already caused by drought. How can we tackle a problem whose solutions are global and go beyond the states borders? How can media tell the human side of this regional challenge?
