In the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) countries, situated in one of the driest and most water-stressed region of the world, sustainable water provision to the various development activities has grown to be one of the most challenging tasks faced. This is due to limited available natural water resources on one hand, and escalating sectoral water demands resulting from the fast-paced socio-economic development and its associated rapid population growth on the other. Currently, the GCC countries are experiencing an alarming future of increasing water scarcity and increasing water supply costs, which might not only threaten their future development, but also the preservation and sustainability of their past economic and social achievements.
