La crise de l’eau au Liban met des millions de personnes en danger, selon l’Unicef

Les systèmes d’approvisionnement « au bord du gouffre » face à une grave pénurie d’eau potable

The health of millions of people in Lebanon — especially children — is at risk because of a limited supply of safe water, Unicef has warned.

The water crisis, which is largely because of a severe lack of electricity, is also affecting hospitals, health centres and schools.

In a report, Unicef said Lebanon’s water supply systems “remain on the brink », with prospects for a solution looking bleak, as limited power supplies make it impossible to pump enough water.
