Worst drought in decades strains Kosovo water supply

Authorities in Kosovo started rationing water to the capital Pristina and its suburbs on Monday amid worst drought in more than three decades, said reports.

The country’s reservoirs are at worrying levels due to abnormally low levels of precipitation, Reuters reported the state water company Prishtina as saying.

Prishtina supplies water to about 400,000 people, or a quarter of Kosovo’s population, said the report.

Jobless in Kosovo

Kosovo is one of the poorest countries in Europe. Up to 45% of the workforce in Kosovo are unemployed with only a fraction  of the 30,000 people entering the job market each year able to find work.

On Sunday Pristina police used tear gas to disperse hundreds of protesters at the country’s main public university.
