SAUDI WATER FORUM
The National Water Conservation Program
Water security and sustainability are one of the most important and main concerns that are being examined and discussed internationally. It is considered as one of the main challenges facing the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia due to the scarcity of water resources and rapid population growth which creates an increasing and accelerating demand for water. Moreover, the economic development taking place in the Kingdom along with the high standard of living contribute to the increase of demand and indicate how important it is inspite the limitation of resources.
The National Water Conservation Program aims to rationalize the water consumption in the Kingdom. The importance of this program stems from the fact that Saudi Arabia’s water consumption per capita ranks among the highest in the world, and this is in conflict with the environmental conditions of the Kingdom. The average water consumption in the Kingdom is 263 liters per capita per day according to the National Water Strategy, while the objective is to reach 200 liters by 2020 and 150 liters by 2030. In order to achieve these targets, this National program was created and tailored toward changing individuals’ behavior, and raise the overall awareness of water conservation benefits.
