Irrigation Fields, Qatar, 2003

Irrigated crop fields stand out starkly against an expanse of Qatari desert. Such farms provide Qataris with some fruits and vegetables, but most of their food is imported. Government efforts to increase domestic agriculture are complicated by the paucity of fresh water in this parched desert nation.

在卡塔尔广阔的沙漠里,灌溉农作物田的问题显得尤为突出。这些农民提供给卡塔尔人水果和蔬菜,但他们自己的大部分食物依靠进口。在这个炎热的沙漠国家里,由于淡水储量极小,政府在改进国内农业上所做的努力举步维艰。
