A severe drought in the northern Marshall Islands has prompted the government to declare a state of emergency. President Christopher Loeak approved the decision after receiving a recommendation by the government's disaster preparedness committee. Marshall Islands meteorologist Regi White has told Radio Australia's Pacific Beat a tropical low over the northern islands has severely impacted rainfall. "Wotje Atoll, one of the islands most to the north of Marshall Islands, has experienced zero rainfall on several of the previous months," he said.

Salt water is no good for plants, or people...isnt that common knowledge? If you are at sea, you will survive longer if you dont drink the water than if you drank the salty water that surrounded you.

Would require the proper infrastructure to do, but I recall a thread about small solar desalination equipment that could help...
