Global Water and Sanitation Projects

Saudi Arabia allocated over $6 billion for water and sanitation projects across four continents, underscoring its role in maintaining the prominence of water issues on the global agenda.

The organization will partner with countries faced with water-related challenges and those that give priority to water sustainability on their national agendas. This collaborative approach gains importance in light of projections indicating a doubling of global water demand by 2050, coinciding with an estimated world population of 9.8 billion.

In collaboration with its member countries, Saudi Arabia aims to contribute to water security-related sustainable development goals. The goal is to make a lasting, integrated impact by uniting the international community in a collective effort to ensure global water sustainability.
