  1. I do not believe that this map is correct. As an Iranian, I know that we have tons of problems in water supplying in the entire of our country, but it shows that we have water supply more than our demands, even in our central desert (where NASA measured the hottest point in the world!).
    Well… I don’t know! may be our government sent bad data to UNEP.
