Water Energy Nexus: Business Risks and Rewards


Water scarcity challenges industries around the world. Global Population growth and economic development suggest a future of increase demand, competition, and cost for limited freshwater supplies. Scarcer water, in turn, creates new challenges for energy supply because coal,oil, gas and electricity production can require massive amounts of freshwater. Yet many countries will need more energy for energy intensive water treatment options, like seawater desalination, to meet their growing demand for water.

The report underlines that improved water management will be critical to reducing MENA’s water gap. In addition, unconventional water sources like desalination and wastewater will be needed as well.
