Key contacts:

Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries are in the top 10 countries worldwide to be facing 'extremely high water stress' - meaning 80% or more of all available surface and groundwater in an average year being consumed. This reality presents a need and opportunity for growth within the region's water infrastructure.

In this podcast, our head of sectors and projects partner Andrew Newbery is in discussion with our Saudi-based projects partner Imran Mufti, as they explore:

  • Why the MENA water sector is ripe with opportunities for growth and where presents the most prospects;
  • A brief history of the delivery of water infrastructure projects in the region and the popularity and innovation of desalination methods most frequently used;
  • How these projects are financed; and
  • What the future holds for water infrastructure projects in the region.

Listen below to take a deep dive into the MENA water sector with our leading experts.
