Saudi scientists have estimated that by 2050, Saudi Arabia will experience much hotter temperatures and less frequent rainfall due to climate.1 This increase in temperature will lead to an increase in the water demand, which will strain the water supply if there is less rainfall.2 With the climate change will likely come increased levels of ammonia, nitrogen, and phosphorus in the surface water that is used for drinking.3 The World Bank has recommended that Saudi Arabia invest in better infrastructure to manage the imminent climate change and water shortage.4 Due to Saudi Arabia's arid landscape, the country experiences few natural disasters.5

Saudi Arabia has an oil-based economy with strong government controls over major economic activities. It possesses about 17% of the world's proven petroleum reserves, ranks as the largest exporter of petroleum, and plays a leading role in OPEC. The petroleum sector accounts for roughly 80% of budget revenues, 45% of GDP, and 90% of export earnings. Saudi Arabia is encouraging the growth of the private sector in order to diversify its economy and to employ more Saudi nationals. Diversification efforts are focusing on power generation, telecommunications, natural gas exploration, and petrochemical sectors. Over 5 million foreign workers play an important ...See More role in the Saudi economy, particularly in the oil and service sectors, while Riyadh is struggling to reduce unemployment among its own nationals. Saudi officials are particularly focused on employing its large youth population, which generally lacks the education and technical skills the private sector needs. Riyadh has substantially boosted spending on job training and education, most recently with the opening of the King Abdallah University of Science and Technology - Saudi Arabia's first co-educational university. As part of its effort to attract foreign investment, Saudi Arabia acceded to the WTO in 2005. The government has begun establishing six "economic cities" in different regions of the country to promote foreign investment and plans to spend $373 billion between 2010 and 2014 on social development and infrastructure projects to advance Saudi Arabia''s economic development.
