Reuse of treated wastewater: North Africa and SUEZ set an example – Africa

“Valuing water”. This is the theme chosen for the celebration of World Water Day on March 22nd, 2021. In Africa, this slogan makes sense insofar as water management has become a major issue in view of climate change.

Several countries are now faced with water stress, which is now affecting several regions, notably North Africa and the Near East. This phenomenon is linked to drought, itself caused by global warming.

According to the United Nations, about 3 billion people are expected to face water stress by 2025. To […]

Experts say Med Sea altered by Suez Canal’s invasive species – Egypt

As Egypt marks the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Suez Canal, marine biologists are bemoaning one of the famed waterway’s lesser known legacies — the invasion of hundreds of non-native species, including toxic jellyfish and aggressive lionfish.

The canal, which connects the Red Sea to the Mediterranean Sea, revolutionized maritime travel by creating a direct shipping route between the East and the West. But over the years, the invasive species have driven native marine life toward extinction and altered the delicate Mediterranean ecosystem with […]

Scientists are looking for new ways to desalinate water using energy resources that reduce dependence on dwindling fossil fuels

The Middle East relies heavily on fossil fuels to drive modern desalination technologies that are used to grow food. Currently only 1 percent of desalinated water comes from renewable resources.  Intermittent or low energy supplies are a problem for agricultural settings, where grid networks may not always stretch. Better ways to capture and store renewable energy resources could increase the sustainability of using desalinated water, making it cheaper and easier to use.  “This is a moment of innovation. You can see that in Saudi Arabia, in Oman, in the Emirates and Qatar and in North African countries. New practices […]
