Abstract

The Middle East is characterised by high water stress. Current climate change processes and increasing demand are leading to even higher water stress in the future. A drastic example not only of the mismatch between limited water availability and high water consumption, but also of intense human intervention in hydrology, is the desiccation of Lake Urmia, Iran’s largest inland lake and one of the most substantial hypersaline lakes in the world. This massive environmental crisis which has long gone unnoticed by the world is by no means a natural phenomenon but a human-made environmental and social disaster which can also be seen as a disastrous feature of the Anthropocene. This article deals with the causes and consequences of the water crisis surrounding Lake Urmia.
