Water challenges facing the Arab Region:
• Increasing water demand and sectoral competition causing more stress on water resources;
• Climate change and extreme events;
• Lack of knowledge and technical capacities;
• Deterioration of peace and security in the Region and its implications on water and food security;
• Water terrorism and upstream hegemony in shared river basins in addition to the so called cyber war over water.
These challenges are threatening the achievement of the SDGs especially SDG6 on water.
