'Threatened' by Drought or Desertification
WHS faced with a lack of water which threatens the criteria on which they were inscribed. The causes may be "Global Warming" (whether "anthropogenic" or not) reducing regular rainfall and increasing desertification or excessive taking of ground water, diversion of rivers etc.
The connection belongs to Damaged connections.
