·3 min read

DUBLIN, Jun 18, 2021--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Middle East Water, 2021 - Water and Wastewater Project and Investment Opportunities in the Middle East and North Africa - MEED Insights" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

While the Covid-19 pandemic has damaged prospects across many of the region's traditional business sectors, it has boosted the outlook for water and wastewater investment in the Middle East and North Africa.

In a region characterised by a lack of rivers, lakes and rainfall, water security has long been a priority, but the pandemic has refocused Middle East states on the vital importance of water security.

GCC water demand is set to rise by about 62 per cent by 2025. Demand growth on this scale necessitates significant capital investment in new capacity. Such investment is happening.

About $80bn-worth of water and wastewater projects are currently planned or underway across the GCC. Governments are backing large-scale strategic investment programmes to increase water production and storage capacity, to expand wastewater and sewage treatment capacity, and to modernise dilapidated water transmission and distribution networks.

Already established in the desalination sector, the PPP model is growing in importance in sewage treatment, transmission and storage.
