Dear Liala-1
Welcome to MEWF, looking forward to your contribution
Many thanks Dr Hazim for the interesting and valuable topic. To add to your article, proper governance on the national and sectoral level is a key issue. Water utilities in the Arab region are controlled by the central government in terms of tariff and investments and thus highly affecting utility performance.
An effective and independent regulatory framework can support improving efficiency and protect both water utilities and customers. On the national level, regulatory entities can protect water utilities by proposing fair tariff to ensure cost recovery of the utility which will result improved level of service and sustainability of investments. This will be implemented under a performance monitoring scheme to ensure utilities are operated in the most efficient way.
On the sectoral level, regulator will provide a base for and improved PPPs by supporting utilities in selecting proper PPP model, preparing contracts, and setting performance targets. The regulator is a key factor to ensure risks are shared between utilities and the private sector and this will promote for an effective partnership with the private sector which will be reflected on utility operation and level of service.

Thank you your excellency for raising this important regional issue.
This is the most important challenge facing water sectors of the Arab Countries in the near future, which is the dry up of their very precious aquifers.
Countries will have to pay huge financial resources to substitute this natural resource in case of depletion, unless immediate tough and serious water measures are taken !!!!!!
That is very interesting article, I will share it in my wall. It is needed almost in all arabic countries. Thank you for your sharing such powerful information. Johans
Great article! There is a significant need to pump the right mix of strategies on groundwater in the Arab region!
We have to think out of the box, excess energy generated by renewable resources (PV) during peak times can be used to produce / desal water for groundwater recharge.

This is the kind of technologies we need which is suitable to our environment and problem.
That is very advanced technology, i was looking for such technology and well contact you to get more information
Thanks for sharing such good news, looking forward to hearing about more similar technologies being implemented.
80% of the world's wastewater is released to environment without treatment, #wetlands function as filters, absorbing pesticides & chemicals & filtering sewage - they are a very effective solution for #water purification and security
There is a successful story of treating oilfield waste water using wetlands in Oman developed by ICBA.
