Saudi Crown Prince Launches Global Water Organization

Saudi Crown Prince HRH Mohammed bin Salman announced Monday that the kingdom is establishing a global water organization to enhance efforts to address water challenges.

The organization, which will be based in Riyadh, will aim to integrate and support the efforts of governments and other bodies to secure global water sustainably. It will also promote the exchange of expertise, the advancement of technology, and the fostering of innovation in water management.

“The establishment of this organization is a manifestation of the Kingdom’s commitment to addressing global water supply challenges,” the Saudi Crown Prince said in a statement. “It is also aligned with our dedication to environmental sustainability.”

The kingdom has made significant investments in water production, transportation, and distribution in recent years. It is the world’s largest producer of desalinated water, and it has also developed a number of innovative water conservation technologies.

The new organization is expected to play a key role in helping to address the global water crisis. It will bring together experts from around the world to share knowledge and develop solutions to the challenges of water scarcity, pollution, and climate change.

Additionally, Saudi Arabia plays a key role in ensuring that global water issues remain a top priority on the international agenda. This is further evidenced by the Kingdom’s developmental funding, with over $6 billion allocated to various water and sanitation projects across four continents.
The organization aims to collaborate with countries facing water-related challenges and those prioritizing such projects on their national agendas. This collaboration will also involve countries with significant expertise and contributions to water solutions. Such cooperation becomes even more vital with projections of the global water demand doubling by 2050, in light of the anticipated growth of the world population to 9.8 billion.
The Kingdom, with all of the organization’s member countries, seeks to contribute to achieving the water security-related sustainable development goals, creating an integrated and long-lasting impact by bringing the international community together to ensure global water sustainability for humanity.
