Enhancing climate resilience of the water sector in Bahrain Approved October 2018 Est. implementation period 5.0 years
Enhanced institutional capacity and knowledge management to mainstream climate resilience into sectoral water management planning. 

Climate change has the potential to cause water shortages in Bahrain - due to reduced aquifer recharge by decreasing rainfall and saltwater intrusion into aquifers. Water demand and consumption patterns are only partially understood for the domestic sector, and less understood for other sectors, including agriculture and industry.

This project will help Bahrain’s Water Resources Council establish and operate a knowledge platform on climate-resilient integrated water resources management framework across different sectors. The project will also initiate an awareness campaign highlighting the benefits of wastewater re-use, and produce guidelines for rainwater harvesting and greywater recycling.
