Economic water scarcity- is when there is water in the area but you can't buy it.
The factors that cause water scarcity is-the environment in Egypt is super dry so the people who live there can't grow food, and also the water can't soak into the ground. The water scarcity is also caused by the government. The government causes the water scarcity by not having enough money to afford the water, or to get a station to collect water and clean it.
