No infrastructure and water it self

The factors that North Africa faces from the lack of safe drinking water is the government, their technology, agriculture and environment.

The reason why I chose sudan is because it is he perfect example of where there is water scarcity, their history is unique (e.g.many wars occurred) and was one of the countries that I first heard of when I was little regarding lack of water.This also includes women walking for hours and hours nonstop getting water which is hard and this would be hard for them and farmers to.
