Qatar Water Report 2015
Overall, although we see Qatar as one of the most active water infrastructure sectors due to the extensiveinvestment being undertaken in the run-up to the 2022 FIFA event, we continue to view the overall waterand sanitation services as underdeveloped, particularly the latter, due to the lack of adequate sewagenetworks and treatment facilities
Over 2022, demand for water is likely to increase by 50% due to the influx of tourists. Ministry officials areputting the level of water needed at around 2mn cubic metres (cu m) a day during the peak of the event.
