There is a prolific market for water and wastewater projects and the UAE has one of the longest track records for privately financed desalination and wastewater treatment projects.

On top of this, water demand is expected to increase by 81% by 2030 – this market insight report is an essential handbook to the emerging opportunities in this sector.
