Yemen has limited water resources. Hence, the protection of these resources from misuses and providing alternative resources have to be a high priority for the country’s national water strategy and to the international community. Water scarcity collides with rapid population growth and increasing water demand and scarcity in electricity. Over the years, the quantity and quality of drinking water in Yemen has continued to deteriorate endangering livelihoods and busine…
Project ResultsThis project in collaboration with the relevant institutes and companies will study, analysis and implement some solutions that will tackle the water issues in Yemen both in the short and the long term. The primary fields of research are: Disaster mitigation, Water, Energy and Environment. Such solutions will require massive investment in: • Create awareness by highlighting the issue internally and externally • Coordinate all the activities of the stockholders in relation to this issue • Building dams • Re-structuring cities • Generate water desalination as well as providing efficient transportation and storing mechanism for clean water using renewable energy resources • Analysis all the technological methods (i.e., water harvesting technologies) used in generating water resources like roof water rain harvesting and producing safe water from the humidity in the air • Finding alternative sources of income for qat growers in order to erode the tree permanently The research expected to be carried out through this project will be in full alignment with the objectives stated in focus area which highlights the water issues and encourages an extended cooperation and collaboration between different nations to promote science and technology in areas that serve the humanity. The severe water shortages in Yemen and the different projects required to tackle this issue will be requiring heavy involvements of many national and international companies with the relevant expertise. The expected projects will also require massive knowledge and technological transfer that will be of great benefit to all the parties involved.
