1. Introduction to this environmental and ecological scientific solution requires background for us to appreciate the present and future challenges that humanity faces using our most precious resource Water. Water security (whether it be the challenge of too little water over long periods of time, or too much water all at once) is one of the most tangible and fastest-growing social, political and economic challenges faced today. It is also a fast-unfolding environmental crisis. In every sector, the demand for water is expected to increase and analysis suggests that the world will face a 40% global shortfall between forecast demand and available supply by 2030 [World Economic Forum website 2012] [1] The Water Resources Group addresses one of the most important and urgent issues today. The biggest part of freshwater withdrawn is being used for agriculture. If we continue overusing this valuable and scarce resource the way we do today, a major food crisis will become inevitable.
[ Peter Brabeck-Letmathe: Chairman of the Water Resources Group] [2]

It is established that 97.5% of all water on Earth is salt water, leaving only 2.5% as fresh water . Nearly 70% of that fresh water is frozen in the icecaps of Antarctica and Greenland; most of the remainder is present as soil moisture, or lies in deep underground aquifers as groundwater not accessible to human use. Less than 1% of the world's fresh water (approximately 0.007% of all water on earth) is accessible for direct human uses. This is the water found in lakes, rivers, reservoirs and those underground sources that are shallow enough to be tapped at an affordable cost. Only this amount is regularly renewed by rain and snowfall, and is therefore available on a sustainable basis. [Human Appropriation of the World's Fresh Water Supply] [5] There is not a day that we do not encounter water personally in its many forms, from drinking liquids, to healthcare and sanitary to breathing the air around us which contains approximately at any one time the same amount of water as all usable annual run off. Agriculture is responsible for (upto) 86 % of the total water used regionally. In Asia it accounts for 86% of total annual water withdrawal, compared with 49% in North and Central America and 38% in Europe. Rice growing, in particular, is a heavy consumer of water: it takes some 5000 litres of water to produce 1 kg of rice. Compared with other crops, rice production is less efficient in the way it uses water. Wheat, for example, consumes 4000 m3/ha, while rice consumes (almost double) 7650 m3/ha. [5] With an average of 360,000 metric tons[6] produced annually of both crops, rice production uses almost twice the amount of fresh water, this offers an indication where a prioritization should be aimed and even within the modern environmentalist approach to energy production there is a cost, as it takes between 1,000 and 4,000 litres of water to produce a single litre of biofuel [4] By approximate calculation, only 10% of the consumed fresh water is used domestically, of which all is drinkable water but only a fraction is physically consumed by humans as drinking water. If we consider that in excess of 25% of drinking water is wasted enroute to the tap and over 40% of agricultural fresh water needs are wasted enroute to irrigation systems and most bizarrely nearly a quarter of the domestic supply of fresh drinking water is used to flush our toilets.

2.1 The Challenge: Our approach to the management and use of drinking water is presently unsustainable and when the World Economic Forum quotes that analysis suggests that the world will face a 40% global shortfall between forecast demand and available supply by 2030, which is only 18 years from now, it becomes essential that we look at all potential contributory solutions to overcome an inevitable global disaster with conflicts erupting, inviting the Quantum of Solace scenario with water valued in many locations higher than gold, generating human depravation and suffering on a scale not yet experienced. 2.2 The Solution: The bizarre fact is that mother earth already holds the solution within its magnetism, evolved over billions of years, occasionally realigning, dismissed by many as a street traders gimmick, although embraced within many cultures for millennia in the form of ley lines. Modern civilization has only just begun in the last millennium to scientifically scratch the surface of understanding how to use and incorporate magnetism into every day life in such as the navigational compass and even more recently during the past 60years researched how to apply it to the many challenges that we are beginning to encounter within our fragile and deteriorating environment. It is its application applied to the vital resource Water and management process that offers solutions to one of the most critical resource challenges that mankind faces, in conjunction with waste management and water pollution mitigation. This is potentially the most miraculous science on earth which provides the chemical free solutions in almost every field of life, which include Drinking Water Treatment, Desalination of soil, use of salty water for Irrigation, treatment of low quality of Seeds to enhance agriculture yield, the maximising of hydroponics, the Enhancing of managed rainfall, Human Health benefits, fuel and energy saving, and addresses pollution in water, air and ground. 2.3 The Targets: Drought pacification includes rain making systems, marginal land crop production enhancement and saltwater irrigation, all which were futuristic terminologies until the 21st century. Thanks to a group of scientists based within UAE, many of todays environmental and humanitarian challenges can now be addressed using state of the art molecular restructuring of water, with numerous benefits. A clear cloudless sky is truly a colossal storehouse for huge supplies of fresh water, although it is a mistake to preach that the atmospheric vapours are supposedly a distillate, the atmospheric water conversely holds a great deal of numerous chemicals, vital for plants. However its the nutrients within brackish salt water when modified to enable absorption by plants that offers the biggest potential, remembering that presently agriculture is responsible for using the large majority of our fresh water resource.

3.1. The Scientists: Quietly behind the scenes scientists have been progressing various applications for the science, some of which seems very basic and other aspects maybe perceived as from futuristic Sci-fi magazines. In reality all of the applications have been tried, tested and proved. It is only the political will, finance and technology adjustments that restrain the open acceptance and its immediate implementation. Magnetic Technologies L.L.C was established in United Arab Emirates in 1995 with the aim to introduce state of the art Magnetic-Technologies and their multi dimensional applications, unmatched impact and greater savings in various fields of life. Magnetic-Technologies are the Worlds Largest Base of Magnetology operating in over 25 countries. Their expertise is the outcome of more than 30 years of constant research and observations of applications in our daily life. The research was carried out by 52 leading research institutes of Russia. The company possesses more than 500 research works in different spheres of economy. 3.1. The Lethargy: During the height of early research and proving during the 1990s, the environment was not top of the agenda, fuel was plentiful and profitable and the term climate change was in its infancy. There was no impulse to take magnetism seriously. Primarily it was introduced to society through street trader market stalls giving the science a poor press, often referred to as a gimmick, much the same as climate change was dismissed as an exaggeration. However today we know differently. Today we need to explore all options, all potential contributions to solving the ever growing challenges of the world as we know it now, before its too late. Climate Change is just one small aspect of Environment Change, which in turn potentially will have devastating effects upon all of our resources and the long term survivability of the human race. At the pinnacle of this resource threat is water and its long term management, presently being wasted and polluted 3.3. The Principle: Magnetizing water molecules will radically alter and accelerate physical and chemical transformations; allowing rain clouds to be created; clouds to be discharged in specific locations; irrigation to be enhanced to produce Class A crops within marginal land; the enhancement of existing crops to increase productivity; ability to desalinate salt contaminated ground back into production; improve the propagation of seeds; strengthening and accelerating new plant growth; reduce the use of fertilizers; reduce the disease rate; enable the use of brackish salt water as irrigation with increased benefits over fresh water; improve fresh drinking water supplies reducing the quantity of drinking water required whilst retaining all the benefits to humans and animals; This science is the secret key to unlock access to the variety of solutions for challenges in food production and conservation of fresh water. This presentation outlines the key scientific initiatives through the use of magnetic technology applications that will help address, ease and solve many of todays humanitarian challenges in marginal, drought and famine challenged environments.

4.1 Pollution: Over the last decades, condition of rivers, lakes and other springs of fresh water have changed drastically. Just a few years ago, this water could be used for irrigation, everyday use and fish-breeding. Today, many of these water springs have become sewage, in which many factories dispose their industrial waste. One of the main issues of humanity, especially drier environments, at this moment, is finding a solution to pollution of fresh waters. There are many projects and proposals that promise to clean waters of rivers, lakes and lagoons. Many of these proposals are actively used, and give positive results. However, we would like to propose a very unusual method that cleans and gives "life" to natural water, i.e. using magnetic technologies. Based on this knowledge, for many years, MagneticTechnology scientists have been carrying out scientific and practical work, which involved magnetic treatment of natural waters. The most interesting works were while cleaning rivers, Lakes, Sea Lagoons and Neutralizing hydrogen sulphide in parts of the Black Sea 4.1.1 Field demonstration: [7] First of its kind, a hydro-magnetic system, made by the scientists of "Magnetic Technologies" company, was installed in the river of Sochi, Russia. The construction of this hydro-magnetic system is a hydro-technical structure of a running/flowing type. After the instalment of this magnetic system in the Sochi River, within a few hours, our scientists, as well as thousands of other people who came to see this experiment, were able to see unique changes. The problem was, that within many years, there was hardly any fish left due to high levels of waste in the river. However, shoals of various fish were swimming from the sea towards our magnetic system as soon as the systems were installed. Within just a few hours, there was so much fish, that it was impossible to see the bottom of the river! Even though the depth of the river in that area is not more than 1,5 m. This was a phenomenal effect also because a few meters away from the system, no fish could be seen. This unique effect lasted for several years and was seen by hundreds of thousands of locals and tourists, until, in 1997 flooding destroyed the system. We have also seen the same effect while installing magnetic systems in lakes and sea lagoons. Also the hydro-chemical composition of the river changed under the influence of the magnetic field. Comparing to the results in the table, the most changes were seen in the decrease of Weighed particles, up to 6,3 mg/l; Magnesium by 2,6 mg/l; Chlorides by 9,3 mg/l; Sulphates by 9,4 mg/l; Hydro carbonates by 103, 5 mg/l; Calcium by 3,4 mg/l; Ammonia ions (according to nitrogen) by 0,007 mg/l; Nitrates (according to nitrogen)by 0,25 mg/l; Phosphorus by 0,019 mg/l; Oil-products - 0,8 mg/l; Sodium + potassium - 7,4 mg/l Crucially Oxygen content increased by 12 mg/l. Magnetically treated water became transparent. The levels of bacteria decreased. For example, control water samples contained bacteria levels of 236,660. but after magnetic treatment, it decreased to 730! Therefore, magnetic hydro-magnetic systems can be used as, so-called, filters for cleaning of small and large rivers, lakes, lagoons and artificial water systems. 4.2 Desalination: Salt water is not suitable for irrigation due to two reasons. First, when irrigating with salt water, salts deposit in plants and decrease cellular circulation. Second, hard salts deposit in soil's capillaries, making it non-permeable. However, if preliminary magnetization of salt water is carried out using devices produced by "Magnetic Technologies" company, formation of incrustations is prevented in the pores of soil and plants. Field experiments that were carried out in soil with hard salty water, rich in calcium sulphates, magnesium and sodium chlorides, were all successful, even during irrigation of agricultural cultures with magnetized water taken from Caspian Sea with mineralization of 14000 PPM. The results of these experiments have not only proven that this method can be used, but also that it is essential for some agricultural cultures. For example, sorghum crop/harvest increased by Fig. Plant absorption 45%, and corn by 30%, compared to a control area that was irrigated by normal (non- salty) and non-magnetized water.

4.3 Agriculture: [7] Nowadays, many written scientific works of biologists and biophysics describe the effect of magnetic fields on plants. Based on these works, "Magnetic Technologies" company came up with a method of magneto-hydro dynamical activization of natural waters and devices used for this method. This method is an essential part in the whole complex of using magnetic fields in agriculture. It includes physical- chemical changes of natural water parameters, resulting in improvement of filtration properties and in an increase of dissolving properties of water. These changes result in an increased ability of soil to get rid of salts and results in a better assimilation of nutrients and fertilizer in plants during the vegetation period. It is known that plants and trees need mineral salts and microelements from the soil to function and photosynthesize properly. However, plants do not use the majority of nutrients that are in soil. While watering plants with normal water, only a small amount of nutritional elements dissolves in the soil and becomes available to the plants. Further consumption of these nutrients from the soil is very rare when plants start to grow and a larger amount of nutrients is required, the deficit of microelements results in low numbers of crop. The deficit of microelements/nutrients in the soil is the main reason for a decreased growth rate and low crop. That is the reason to why magnetic water should be used for irrigation. In addition, when the plant is watered using hard and non- magnetized water, white coating is formed on the surface of the soil: that is calcium bicarbonate and carbonate. Some of calcium bicarbonate is washed away by water penetrating soil and depositing on the roots of plants. The plant, then, starts to suffocate because of these depositions and in order to continue to feed, forms additional roots. This process results in a decrease of normal growth in plants. However, plants that are irrigated using water that is treated by "Magnetic Technologies" company, easily take in mineral salts from the soil and no sediment is formed on the soil surface. Also if mineral and organic fertilizers are used, they dissolve better which results in their decrease need for use by 50% and at the same time, plants still continue to develop without any extra effort. This results in an increased crop production and in an increased quality of agricultural products. In short, the economic advantage of using magnetic water for irrigating the crops looks like this: 1. Vegetation period decreases by 15-20 days, therefore the crops ripe 15-20 days earlier than normally. 2. Crop production increases from 15-20% to 100%, and in some cases, even more. 3. Plant disease rates drastically decrease. 4. Taste of agricultural products improves. 5. Approximately 30% less water is used for irrigation 6. Sea water (salty water) can be used for watering (from 6-8 thousand PPM inclusive) and for some cultures, very salty water can be used (from 15 thousand inclusive). 7. By magnetizing seeds before sowing and by irrigating them with magnetic water, the need for crop material decreases by min. 30%. 8. Average of 30% decrease in fertilizer consumption. 9. Active soil desalination takes place, increasing crop production year after year.

5.1 Drought Pacification is a term that describes a combination of magnetic applications along with collaborative structural and community water management and agricultural systems that offer the opportunity to develop sustainability with vulnerable populations within regions of low rainfall, poor agricultural productivity constantly threatening drought and famine. Drought pacification must incorporate a variety of solutions including rain making systems, improved water access and storage, marginal land crop production enhancement, ground decontamination and the use of saltwater for irrigation, much of which was deemed futuristic solutions until the 21st century.. A clear cloudless sky is truly a colossal storehouse for huge supplies of fresh water and according to reliable scientific findings the atmospheric water conversely holds a great deal of numerous chemicals beneficial to plants and animals. Cloud formation generating rain within controlled areas offers a major solution in provision of water; if combined with magnetising that water during irrigation stages to generate and enhance crop growth within the marginal lands, then potentially we regain control of our environments. It is not suggested that we create pastures within desert regions with minimal populations, however, where established communities have experienced unusual or prolonged drought, this is the opportunity to implement a drought pacification system. However it is essential that the infrastructure be installed to take advantage of rain fall, by creating efficient storage facilities, eliminating leaks from distribution pipes and maximising the use of the water for drinking, recycling discharged water into the magnetically enhanced irrigation systems. So how may the cloud creation work? 5.2 The atmosphere [7] draws the water chiefly from the ocean's surface. An average of 520,000km 3 of water will evaporate from the planet surface annually. This volume can be put on a par with that of the Black Sea, which has an average depth of 1.2 km. It takes just one year for a hydrological cycle equal to 5.2 x 10 14 ! to complete within the range of earth atmosphere. The moisture in the air is changed 40 times a year, i.e. once every other 9 days. To return to earth the atmospheric water vapour will release its potential energy. Nevertheless, before that happens the vapour condenses to liquid drops of water or transforms into minuscule ice crystals. It forms clouds, fogs and then makes rain. For the atmospheric water to do this job the following two conditions should be met. One of them is obligatory whilst the other is advisable. It is mandatory that the temperature go down to the point when the air is utterly saturated with the water vapour and it is desirable that the air have the hubs wherein the vapour is condensed to a liquid drop condition or minute ice crystals. As a rule, the earth atmosphere and, in particular, within the limits of troposphere contains sufficient dust particles of organic and inorganic nature, which will precipitate condensation. 5.3 Cloud formation: [7] Now we have come close to the point when we can talk about nimbus formation which involves magnetic technologies and magnetic systems. As has been mentioned before engineering spray-assisted irrigation works serve as powerful generators, which contribute to ionization of the atmospheric air. This is likely to cause dramatic changes in the electric balance of the atmospheric layers. To crown it all, such streams of ions have a magnetic basis that makes it possible to speed up coagulation (the process of tiny particles sticking together and forming clusters) by many times over in the atmospheric convection. Cloudiness that is out of the question under usual circumstances in arid climatic conditions becomes a reality once magnetic air-spray ion generators are put into operation there.

5.4 Precipitation targeting: [7] In this case, it is essential to learn everything about winds in the chosen area, type of head winds at different heights, temperature of head winds and, most importantly, choose and exact place for installation of magnetic generators. For example, city of Al Ain, UAE is located on the foot of a mountain, Hafit. The height of this mountain is 432 m. Wind direction from 12 noon to 5 p. m. is north-east (wind blowing from Hafit mountain to Al Ain). Next to the mountains foot, is a few hot water springs with temperatures of approx. 70C. Average temperature during spring, summer and autumn ranges from 30-45C. In this case, installation of magnetic generators on different levels of Hafit Mountain, will considerably decrease temperature around the area by approx. 5-7C, at each level. Considering the fact that the difference of temperatures between the top and the bottom of the mountain is 4-5C, overall decrease in temperature will be around 15-20C. At the same time, magnetic generators that are installed at mountains foot, will act as evaporators-ionizators in the region of hot water springs. This will create an additional effect of steam bath. Rising upwards, negatively charged upper part of the steam will meet a positively charged cold steam coming from magnetic generators (that are installed on the top of a mountain). This will create a strong electro- static electricity, which will create coagulation of small water drops located in the surrounding masses of the atmospheric air. This will be enough to create a process, which can be controlled, of creating rain clouds. In addition, knowing wind direction and its speed, as well as, time necessary for drop formation and collection of full cloud mass, we can accurately make a prognosis of an exact place of the rain fall, and considering this, build collecting lakes in that area. 6. ADDED VALUE TO INTEGRATIVE RISK MANAGEMENT must include sustainability through all risks, not just through physical calamities but equally addressing humanitarian vulnerability to drought, crop failure and climate change. With the use of magnetic technology, a variety of applications can aid mitigation, preparedness and recovery from such threats. By implementing proactive strategies, potentially this science can minimise adverse commercial agendas, avoid political and cross border need for conflict and assist in providing stability and sustainability within all vulnerable populations providing the largest of integrative risk managed strategies. 7. CONCLUSION It is vital to understand that in order to conserve and preserve the worlds most vital resource Water, we must ensure a collaborative approach of sciences and explore previously dismissed technologies. The fuse is lit with environmental change the wick, incorporating climate change as the wax, adding the fuel which quickens the pace of the change, until one day soon all animals will need turn upon each other in the struggle to secure our most vital resource. Previous statements have been cited that by the year 2030 the world will be at crisis point, that it will be too late to start addressing the management of water then, we need to initiate strategies now that provide the long term answers to the powder keg of challenges fast approaching. Now is the time to address desalination, not as pure drinking water but for the largest of users of fresh water presently, agriculture. We need the option to implement strategies using magnetic ILAP technology to manipulate local weather systems, inducing cloud and precipitation where it is needed maximising storage, effectively using run off water, improving our domestic pipe leakage and inefficient irrigation supply lines. This world is creeping towards a desperate state of non-sustainability. Now is the time to investigate all options before time runs out. The key objectives being to enable salt water to be used for irrigation; to ensure we minimise wastage, maximise storage, eliminate pollution of our waters and to use the largest of vehicles, our atmosphere, to move and manipulate the rains into place where most desperately needed, pacifying the most deadly natural disasters threatening the political stability and the future of mankind...drought.
