Abstract:

BMI View: The Egyptian water sector is relatively well developed with regards to extraction and distribution; however, the wastewater and sanitation segments need much more investment. The Middle East is classed as a water stressed area, and the whole region is losing water at a dramatic pace as resources are over-used beyond renewal rates, and demand continues to increase across the board. ...Increasing levels of demand, a keen government focus on the sector and recently secured investment create many opportunities for foreign and domestic operators and investors. The Egyptian government s focus on public-private partnerships (PPPs) has been heavily balanced towards water infrastructure and substantial potential still exists if the government decides to throw its support behind PPPs, though low water tariffs offer minimal profit opportunities for companies involved in the operation of these facilities and services, which will act as a moderate deterrent. We identify significant room for investment in Egypt s water infrastructure, which requires extensive maintenance and expansion. ...Despite the Ethiopian government s claims that the dam poses no threat to Egypt s water supply, the topic is likely to remain a point of contention throughout the construction process.

...Demand will surely increase at a faster rate once Egypt s economy recovers its verve, which will put added pressure on the new authorities to improve service delivery. Ongoing water outages pose risk to domestic and non domestic consumers alike across the country. ...Ongoing water outages pose risk to domestic and non domestic consumers alike across the country. As yet, there is a lack of policy clarity at the highest levels, with long-planned projects occasionally scrapped with little warning - deterring investors. Public protests over poor water services, combined with a refusal to accept water tariff increases, results in the sector being hamstrung. ...Public protests over poor water services, combined with a refusal to accept water tariff increases, results in the sector being hamstrung. The existing infrastructure is being neglected, with the result that water losses are soaring, putting additional pressures on country s resources.

...� Business Monitor International Ltd Page - now more proactively involved in the Ethiopian Renaissance Dam project, and will therefore, in our view, be better positioned to protect its water supplies, particularly those earmarked for irrigation, we continue to believe that water scarcity in North Africa pose serious challenges to Egypt s agricultural production as water management programmes implemented in the region will only have a marginal impact. Political and security risks will also add to these challenges in the region and changes to current repartition of water resources will put Egypt at a disadvantage, particularly with regards to its agricultural water demand. ...
