The Middle East North African region is known to be one of the most arid places in the world. The issue of securing and maintaining water supplies often remain a challenge. Coupled with rising demand due to population growth, agricultural use and increasing industrialization and urbanisation, the region is facing a water crisis. (Reuters, Mar 20, 2009) Regulators and municipal bodies in each of countries (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Oman, Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, Qatar, Bahrain) needs to review its water needs, policies, plans , investments and strategies to resolve water issues in their countries. What role can private companies and investors play when working with government and municipal bodies to resolve the crisis?

The financial crisis has no doubt influenced decision makers in their choice of investment frameworks in water infrastructure projects and also financing options available. What are the options and strategies available to ensure the success of private-public partnership in water investments ?

Technology advances and improvements are constantly required in the water sector, be it in securing or managing water supplies. Some of these options for renewing and managing water supplies have become commonplace in the MENA region. Desalination is not new to the region, but the sustainability of this in the long haul will be a vital issue to look into. Other options: wastewater reuse, wastewater treatment , sludge management are also gaining more importance. It is vital to assess the latest technology advances and growth potential of the solutions in the MENA region.

Another often neglected part in managing water supplies is leakage management. Managing pipelines with minimal disruption to the entire network is also important if cost efficiency in water and wastewater management is required. Weigh the strategies available and options to minimize leakage.
