To fight against the ever- present problem of aridity in Iran, since antiquity underground galleries, many kilometers long, have been dug collectively to channel water from the aquifer springs of the foothills to the villages and fields. This system of underground canals or qanats is also a testament to the equitable and peaceful sharing of water within communities affected by aridity.
