Taking place fortnightly between September and November, the Transforming Water in the Middle East Series brought together key players involved in some of the most significant water and wastewater investment initiatives in the region.
he expertise of the international private sector will play a crucial role in addressing the water needs of the Middle Eastern region in facing down historic water scarcity brought on by an arid climate and aggravated by rapidly growing populations and shifting economic priorities. The region offers a highly competitive projects landscape which continues to be at the cutting edge of infrastructure developments at the intersection of water technology, innovative finance and energy. Forging collaborative networks will not only be vital in staying up to date with current affairs but also managing the shifting risk profile these opportunities present.
This initial series of six sessions aimed to enable project proponents to communicate their ambitions and expectations to potential partners, and for contractors, innovators and other suppliers to initiate the relationships they need for success in the region.
