In the country of the world the darker the red the more water per capita. MEDCs for example the United States that uses over 3000 per capita . Compared to central Africa in Kenya and Uganda where less than 1000 per capita. This is 1/3 of the amount. On the other table the The country’s in red are the LEDC (Lower economical developed country). The ones in black are the MEDCS. The country’s in red are the LEDC (Lower economical developed country). The ones in black are the MEDCS. From the map the MEDCs have more water per capita compared to the LEDS. This might be due to the MEDCs have more developed methods of using and recycling water such as London that has gone through the human body on average over 7 times. This increased development allows waste to be turn into suitable water again. Filtering allows it to be used on agriculture and farming for example. The LEDCs can’t afford to offer this serves for everyone in the country. This decrease the usage of water. The LEDCs don’t have the money to invest in water storage systems such as reservoirs due to the cost and annual expense of maintenance such as dredging. Task 2

Due to water storages drying up such as the Middle East after satellites show freshwater reserves the size of the Dead Sea have dried up on the 13th of this month, huge problems are caused by a lack of sufficient water sources! River act as an important water source for farming that partially in LEDCs take their water from to irrigate the...
