The Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region can be considered as the most water-scarce region of the world. As the MENA region’s population continues to grow and climate change will affect... More > weather and precipitation patterns, the MENA region may experience even more water shortage in the near future. The study explores for the 21 MENA countries how water demand, supply and shortage will change over the coming 40 years. The study explores also alternatives to overcome the projected water shortages. Results indicate that unmet demand for the entire MENA region, expressed as percentage of total demand, will increase from 16% currently to 51% in 2040-2050. Various adaptation strategies were explored resulting in the conclusion that costs to overcome water shortage in 2040-2050 will be about US$ 100 billion every year. The study will contribute to the World Bank Flagship Report and is considered as the most reliable study of water shortage and policy directions for the MENA region.< Less

Water shortage is a major problem facing the power industry in many nations around the world. The largest consumer of water in most power plants is the wet cooling tower. To assist water and energy... More > saving for thermal power stations using conventional evaporative wet cooling towers, a novel hybrid cooling system is investigated in this book. Research on cooling systems to date has focussed on the individual components of cooling systems, not the system as a whole. Most of this research has been dedicated to cooling tower design and the optimisation of cooling tower characteristics. The issue of conserving water due to evaporation from existing operations has not been highly considered in the past. The major drawback in most of the previously conducted research in this field is the gap between maintaining energy efficiency whilst trying to reduce water consumption.< Less
