Digital Water: A silver bullet for the climate crisis?

Download Report

The Middle East is warming at nearly twice the global average and is not on-track to achieve the water security goals set out in the UN’s Vision 2030. In fact, GCC water demand is set to rise 62% by 2025, according to MEED estimates.

Here are some eye-opening facts:

  • 79% of all global greenhouse gas emissions come from the infrastructure sector when considering its full life cycle
  • 34% of all produced water worldwide is non-revenue water and is lost before it reaches its intended destination
  • 32 billion cubic metres of treated water is lost through leakages in distribution networks globally
