Morocco is expecting a tough summer when it comes to water supply.

The North African nation’s worst drought in 40 years is leaving people without tap water for hours during summer times, particularly in the southeast part of the country.

“The 2022 drought is happening after four consecutive years of moderate to severe drought, which led to an exceptionally dry year in Morocco,”.

In May, the minister of equipment and water stated that Morocco would be facing difficult periods due to a rise in temperatures and low water reservoir levels, which plummeted from 62% in 2013 to 32% in 2022.
