Fiji’s water crisis is hitting the world, with some of the world’s poorest countries and most vulnerable people struggling to cope with the severe shortages of the year.
Fiji, home to some of Africa’s most impoverished people, has been hit by the worst drought in its history.
Its water resources are also threatened by rising sea levels and melting glaciers, as well as by a lack of electricity and other basic needs.
But the drought is only the latest crisis to hit the island nation in recent years.
Fishermen are the primary drivers of the drought, as they depend on fresh water from the nearby Great Barrier Reef to feed their families.
Fijian President Furuichi Matsunaga has called for the government to boost its water use to help feed the island’s population.
Fukuoka, a small city in the center of Fiji’s capital Furuike, has seen a steep decline in its population in recent months.
In August, nearly half the population of Fukuoka was in need of food assistance.
The population of Fiji has dropped from 1.7 million in 2014 to just 1.1 million people in the first six months of 2019, according to government data.
Fukuoya Mayor Yameen Fakir says the government needs to help its poorest residents.
“Fukuoya’s population is falling and we need to give our poorest citizens the opportunity to have more opportunities,” he said.
The decline in the population in Fukuoho is partly due to a sharp rise in the number of cases of measles in the city in recent weeks.
It is not clear why, but the city has seen the highest number of new cases of the virus in the world.
Fukushima has seen its water levels drop as well.
The city has suffered from record flooding, as the waters have risen dramatically in recent decades, raising the possibility of major shortages.
Some residents say the city is facing its worst water shortage in more than a century, according a CNN report.
Water in the Fukushima prefecture is at its lowest level in almost 60 years, according the Japan Association of Water Users.
The agency says it needs to keep up the pressure to prevent further flooding.
In Tokyo, a drought is also taking its toll on the city.
The rain and snowstorm in March that caused widespread flooding has made it difficult to get water from reservoirs.
In the capital, tens of thousands of people in Tokyo have been forced to use water from a small dam to cool their homes.
A water tower in Tokyo was damaged by the storm.
In southern Japan, residents have been turning to the water of the Tokyo River to flush their toilets, as residents struggle to cope.
The water supply has been severely restricted, and water shortages have become the norm in many areas.
More than half of Tokyo’s population of about 11 million is estimated to be living below the poverty line, according an Associated Press count of official figures released earlier this month.
Tokyo Mayor Ryosuke Ono says the city needs to be able to cope more with the crisis.
He says he is worried about the safety of his city’s water supply.
