On the road to water sustainability in the Gulf

28 April, 2016


​Prof. Kim Choon NG and Dr. Muhammad Wakil Shahzad​ recently published their work ​on Nature Middle East.
Their research show new studies that carry potential for creating much more efficient water desalination systems in the Gulf.

​​Despite having more than 60% of the world’s desalination installations, fresh water availability in the Gulf Cooperation Countries (GCC) is rapidly falling far below the UN’s water poverty threshold, which is 1000 cubic meter​s per capita per year.​

This is compounded by an exponential population growth and industrial development. The average fresh water availability in the region now is on average 90-100 cubic metres per capita per year which has prompted GCC governments to increase spending to combat water scarcity and ensure sustainable resources for the future.
