Project Insight - Water and Sewage Construction Projects: Middle East and Africa

The Middle East and Africa includes the developing countries of Africa and the highly developed Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, with oil revenue to be spent on developing and improving water and sewage infrastructure.The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is the world’s most water-scarce region, with 17 countries below the water poverty line set by the United Nations.

Rapid population and economic growth, shared water supplies across borders, and the effects of climate change - including frequent droughts, together with declining rainfall - have severely tested water supplies. The desalination of seawater is common in the region, with the highest investment in Kuwait and Oman, with US$17.6 billion and US$11.8 billion respectively.

The MENA region is responsible for 47% of global desalination capacity, which has a large carbon footprint, given the amount of power required in the desalination process.Apart from the economic damage that scarcity of water creates there are wider political implications due to potential sources of aggression with cross border disputes over water in the region.

The potential for wide scale epidemics in sub-Saharan Africa as a result of poor water supply and wastewater treatment is a constant threat in the region.Large urban populations are located away from the main source of water in the Congo River basin, with infrastructure being expensive, and the necessity to overcome the difficult topography of the region.

Most water supply is surface-based, rather than from ground sources or aquifers, and is often polluted.
