Food, Agriculture and Water
Desalination is a very energy intensive process, often using energy supply from fossil fuel sources. Until now, most desalination plants have been in regions with high availability and low costs of energy. Renewable energy-powered desalination could be a key enabler for continued growth, especially in those countries that rely on desalinated water for sustaining local communities and productive uses such as irrigation. The clean energy transition is an opportunity for many Arab countries to build sustainable energy and water systems, with the support of the international community, especially to attract the necessary investments.
