Like other North African countries, Egypt is placing a strong emphasis on the development of unconventional water resources for human consumption and agriculture.

The responsibilities are shared, between the arid climate of certain areas of the country, and climate change which intensifies the drought. 

“The solution may be to integrate the desalination and wastewater treatment strategy into the general policy of the state in terms of rational water management and maximum use of available water,” says the Egyptian Minister of State for Military Production, Mohammed Ahmed Morsi.
