Two of the largest rivers in the world flow through africa.South Africa has a lot of rivers running through it.www.dwaf.gov.za/iwqs/gis_data/river/nothing.html
Amount of water is comparative, and also depends on the population. Africa's population has increased drastically recently due to modern medicine, and its not helped by the environment greatly increasing evaporation. There is only so much you can harvest from rivers, and many other countries that are called dry also have rivers. In addition, dry areas will typically require more water from external sources (eg. the already stressed rivers) in order to farm effectively.
You could have the amazon go through a country of enough people and them still not be able to sustain themselves effectively if the population is high enough.
Sounds like bad goverment to me
Yes and no. Its all in the carrying capacity of an environment. Environments, and indeed the world, have hard limits as to the amount of specific organisms they are able to support, it just happens that humans are able to (temporarily) drive our populations well above those limits. How do you stop people from having children, or encourage them to kill themselves to reduce population (... other than war which is a standard way of doing this unfortunately). Human society requires certain inputs. Water is required for drinking, food, industrial purposes, cleanliness and many other things.
The desert is in the north
My bad I just read "Africa" not "south Africa"
However there certainly is desert in South Africa as well.
Not much and it has a climate similar to the mediterean.

Oh and the population is raising super fast in africa while they still ve not enough food or water plus we have climatic change i predict in 10-20 years a lot of refugees here in Europe will be refugees that left their countrie because of the bad climatic situation Lets say 50.000 a year then it grows in 50 years maybe to 200.000-400.000 a year; who knows we will all see future will have many conflicts n problems and this is just one
Some of the biggest rivers and lakes in the world are in africa
Yea but also one of the highest temperatures and soon biggest population africa could have 2 billion inhabitants in future
Nigerias population will be higher and us americas population in 2070 Nigeria 500million predicted usa 450 million
Africa has an abundance of land and resources, perhaps they need to learn how to use them better
Yeah and they should do it like china, regulating fertility rate
Europe and the United States are far more overpopulated compared to Africa.The population of Africa is about the same as the American continent
Yea right now, look into the future and think how africa with 2-3Billion people will look like Worlds future is litterally fucked
People have been saying that for decades
Yes and soon everyone will see the predictions get reality our future is dark tho even the techological advance is bad cuz robots will do most jobs in future they ll 'steal' the jobs since they are cheaper than human workers Future is dark with so many problems
