Many countries treat still its water shortage by building dams and reservoirs.
Now, claims the research, led by Uppsala university, to measure, on the contrary, can worsen the problem.
But now an international team of researchers, led by Uppsala university, how magasineringen, on the contrary, can contribute to aggravate the problems.
Now have their results published in the journal Nature Sustainability
– We believe that it is unsustainable to try to increase the water supply to meet a demand increases on the water – which, in turn, is driven by the growing range, " says Giuliano Di Baldassarre, professor of hydrology at the department of earth sciences at Uppsala university.
