13 aid groups in Syria have revealed that more than 12 million people in Syria and Iraq are losing access to water, food and electricity; calling for urgent action to combat the severe water crisis.
It was reported that rising temperatures, low levels of rainfall and drought are depriving people across the region of drinking and agricultural water.
Syria is currently facing its worst drought in 70 years.
Compiled by a group of international organizations, the report warned higher temperatures caused by climate change increased the risks and severity of droughts in the region.
The changes in the climate also disrupted electricity as dams ran out of water, which in turn impacted the operation of essential infrastructure including health facilities.
