Executive summary

The water supply and demand balance of most countries in the ESCWA region is in serious deficit. Specifically, the average share of renewable freshwater in eight out of 14 ESCWA member countries is 500 cubic metres per capita per year (m3/c/yr), which represents half the internationally accepted water poverty threshold of 1,000 m3/c/yr. Furthermore, the regional average supply of freshwater per capita per year is significantly less than the world average.
