This quarter we have expanded and revised our forecasts to include water extraction by source, mains and household consumption, losses and treated wastewater. Overall, although we see Qatar as one of the most active water infrastructure sectors due to the extensive investment being undertaken in the run up to the 2022 FIFA event, we continue to view the overall water and sanitation services as underdeveloped, particularly the latter, due to the lack of adequate sewage networks and treatment facilities.

Qatar is one of the largest per capita water consumers in the world, with consumption levels quadruple that of the average European consumer. In order to cater to the vast consumption levels and limited freshwater reserves, the country is focusing on a massive reservoir-development project. At present five reservoirs are under construction or in the tendering process and more are in the pipeline. Desalination facilities and wastewater treatment projects are also seeing extensive investment under the auspices of various Ashghal development programmes; we expect these programmes - designed to boost the country's water availability - will continue, offering numerous opportunities to water infrastructure companies. However, water treatment and sanitation is still extremely underdeveloped and needs a large amount of investment. Robust private consumption on the back of a fast-growing population and large government spending commitments will drive developments in the water supply, distribution and sanitation sectors as demand continues to soar. Over 2022, demand for water is likely to increase by 50% due to the influx of tourists. Ministry officials are putting the level of water needed at around 2mn cubic metres a day during the peak of the event. This will put extreme pressure on the system, resulting in a swathe of government projects into various aspects of the water sector.
