Event WEBINAR: Launch of the regional study: "Desalination as an alternative to alleviate water scarcity and a climate change adaptation option in the MENA region"

For dry regions like the MENA, desalination has long been part of national water strategies. As a whole, the region accounts for almost the half of the world’s desalination capacity and is home to some of the largest desalination plants. This regional study aims at presenting the state of the art of desalination in the MENA region as a valuable alternative for water supply in front of an increasing water scarcity exacerbated by climate change and economic and population growths.

During this virtual meeting, the regional study prepared by Dr. Jauad El Kharraz and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung Regional Program Energy Security and Climate Change Middle East and North Africa (KAS – REMENA), will be officially presented and its main outcomes will be discussed.
