Water Resources Development and Management Program

Strategies to Maximize Water Security

Kuwait is a country of significant economic capabilities but very limited natural water resources. These conditions have created a rather fragile water sector that is 90% dependent on expensive seawater desalination. KISR initiated the WRDM Program to identify ways to sustainably optimize the use and management of Kuwait’s water resources through applied research. The program was also designed to develop integrated strategic water policies, management options, and action plans to alleviate water problems, maximize socioeconomic growth and increase the nation’s water security.
