Strategy
Passed in 2017
The UAE Water Security Strategy 2036 aims to ensure sustainable access to water during both normal and emergency conditions in line with local regulations, standards of the World Health Organisation, and the UAE's vision to achieve prosperity and sustainability. 

The overall objectives of the strategy are to reduce total demand for water resources, increase water productivity, reduce water scarcity, increase the reuse of treated water and increase national water storage capacity.

The strategy also includes the establishment of 6 connecting networks between water and electricity entities across the UAE. Water networks will be able to provide 91 litres of water per person per day in cases of emergency, or 30 litres per person per day in cases of extreme emergencies. Once implemented, the Water Security Strategy 2036 will achieve savings of AED 74 billion and reduce the emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2), associated with water desalination process, by 100 million metric tons.
