The Middle East is one of the most water-scarce regions in the world, with countries like Kuwait possessing almost nil internal renewable water resources. But the demand for water is high, with Kuwait showcasing one of the highest water consumption per capita per day, in the region. Desalination and sewage treatment plants are the main sources of water in the country, as the annual precipitation is meager. With a high number of residential consumers, numerous projects are being undertaken to bridge the gap between demand and supply. 

In this report, we examine and analyze the present status of Kuwait Water Sector, and highlight the demand and supply trends. We enumerate the investments and projects that are presently underway in Kuwait water sector to sort out the water related problems of the country. Growing demand and close-to-nil natural water supply will ensure that investments in the water sector remain a key priority for Kuwait over the next decade.
