Abstract:

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 ---- 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 Over ----, demand for water is likely to increase by -- due to the influx of tourists.

The loss of the event would be a significant blow to Qatar s global soft power ambitions.
