About This Report


Although Hong Kong has little in the way of domestic water resources, the city state benefits from strong water infrastructure - a selling point for investors. At present, however, there are limited new projects in the pipeline and many that are in progress are nearing completion. Under the Total Water Management Strategy, Hong Kong s Water Supplies Department (WSD) is hoping to contain the country s freshwater consumption while also tapping into alternative sources of water for daily use. We expect the city-state to become increasingly self sufficient with regards to water supplies over the next two decades, as it seeks to shift away from the current reliance on Chinese water sources, and move towards reclaimed wastewater production and desalination.

Hong Kong is currently heavily reliant on the Guangdong imports for the majority of its freshwater consumption, with desalination being largely reserved for flushing, and water recycling resources predominantly being allocated to industrial users. Imported waters from China can account for as much as -- of all water consumption in the city state, with a limit set on the volume of imported waters, of around -.--bn cubic metres a year for the period of ---------. ...Table: Water Production ---- ---- ---- ----e ----f ----f ----f ----f Total water production, mn cubic metres -,---.- -,---.- -,---.- -,---.- -,---.- -,---.- -,---.- -,---.- Total water production, y-o-y -.- -.- --.- -.- -.- -.- -.- -.- Total water production, litres per person/day ---.- ---.- ---.- ---.- ---.- ---.- ---.- ---.-
