  • [01] Agriculture Minister - desalination plant

    Climate change exerts pressure on natural resources and adaptation measures are essential, Minister of Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Environment Nicos Kouyialis said on Wednesday, noting that "with targeted investments, we can build today the foundation for tomorrow`s prosperity."

    Addressing the inauguration ceremony of the Limassol Desalination Plant, Kouyialis said this was the fifth desalination plant in Cyprus, "the completion of which eliminates the dependency on the weather conditions and climate change, thus ensuring adequate quantities of potable water for the urban, suburban and tourist areas."

    Kouyialis pointed out that "water resources in Cyprus are limited and are being supplied and enriched almost exclusively by rainwater" and that "the climate changes and the frequent and long-term periods of drought worsen the water scarcity problem."
