One Of The Largest Country In The World With No River, See How It Gets Water

Nations with predominantly desert temperatures or exceptionally arid climates are less likely to have rivers or are unable to sustain perennial rivers year-round. Saudi Arabia is the largest by far in terms of land area.

Saudi Arabia is the world's largest country without a river. It is also the only country in the world with coastlines on both the Persian Gulf and the Red Sea.

Mountains, lowlands, and deserts cover a large portion of Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia features various wadis, despite the lack of permanent rivers.

In a country where rain is scarce, the Berain factory's practice of draining groundwater could be dangerous: In Saudi Arabia, groundwater accounts for 98 percent of all naturally occurring freshwater. They are being utilized for domestic, industrial, and farm irritation.

In the hilly southwest of the country, around 50 percent of drinking water comes from desalination, 40 percent from non-renewable groundwater extraction, and barely ten percent from surface water.
