  • International Water Summit has sourced this news from Eco-Business. At least 12 of the poorest slums covering over 2,000 households in one city each in Fiji and Indonesia will participate in a pilot run for what would be the world's blueprint for sustainable and safe water delivery and sanitation solutions. An international consortium led by Australia’s Monash University will begin a research project that could provide the blueprint for ecologically and economically sustainable water and sanitation solutions for the over one billion people living in urban slums mostly in developing countries.

    International Water Summit has sourced this news from Gulf News. For much of 2016, the GCC has been pre-occupied by the economic impact of a liquid that comes out of the ground. Oil has long been the bedrock of regional economies. The revenues generated have built impressive cities, driven investment and modernization, and supported development across the region. However, if the GCC is to continue to grow and progress, there is another liquid to worry about – one far more important to the future of the region: water.

  • International Water Summit has sourced this news from Trade Arabia. Getting freshwater will become increasingly challenging for countries in the Mena region as populations grow and living standards rise over the coming decades. In many cases, current water sources will become unsustainable, the International Energy Agency (IEA) highlights in a new analysis. To reduce the use of non-renewable groundwater and still meet growing water needs, the production of desalinated seawater in the Mena region is projected to be 13 times higher in 2040 compared to 2014. Traditionally, desalination has been powered by oil or natural gas, or is based on reverse osmosis, which requires significant quantities of electricity.

  • International Water Summit has sourced this news from Gulf News. Accelerating climate change threatens almost half of the world’s population with high water stress by 2030, according to the United Nations. Last year’s report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warned that increased carbon emissions could significantly reduce renewable surface water and groundwater resources in dry subtropical regions. Much of the projected total global population increase of three billion over the next three decades will occur in developing countries, putting severe pressure on already limited supplies of fresh water.

  • International Water Summit has sourced this news from Entrepreneur Middle East. When it comes to commercial farming in the MENA region, the months of hot weather here often pose a challenge to commercial farmers wanting to set up shop here. A remedy to this problem is the concept of hydroponic farming, which grows plants without artificial elements in soil-less or aquatic-based environments, using only mineral nutrient solutions, which means crops are no longer reliant on climate or season.

  • International Water Summit has sourced this news from GDN Online. The UAE and other GCC states are global leaders in desalination, and have proved the value of the technology in underpinning water security worldwide, said a report released at the International Water Summit (IWS) which opened in Abu Dhabi, UAE (January 16). The world uses almost 87 million cu m of desalinated water every day, and the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region accounts for 44 per cent of that figure, according to the International Desalination Association. In the GCC alone, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Kuwait and Qatar are all among the world’s 10 largest users of desalination, it stated.
