Iran is facing a water shortage of epic proportions, and little is being done to reverse decades-long trend that has reduced the country's water supply to crisis levels. Changes in global climate, a century of rampant development and heavy subsidies for water and other utilities are all contributing to a situation that is likely to get much worse.
