Sustainable Development/ Clean Water and Sanitation

   Water scarcity affects more than 40 percent of people, an alarming figure that is projected to rise as temperatures do. More and more countries are experiencing water stress, and increasing drought and desertification is already worsening these trends. 
   By 2050, it is projected that at least one in four people will suffer recurring water shortages.
   Safe and affordable drinking water for all by 2030 requires we invest in adequate infrastructure, provide sanitation facilities, and encourage hygiene. Protecting and restoring water-related ecosystems is essential.

   The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia makes huge investments in water desalination and sanitation projects, thereby made great strides in these sectors. Saudi Arabia is a leading world producer of desalinated water, 
   with a share of 16.5% of total worldwide production. University of Hail provides clean water and sanitation facilities in the University with a view to achieving a sustainable environment, in a manner commensurate with the National Transformation Plan and Vision 2030.

     - University of Hail is providing clean water in all the buildings within the university campus.
     - All the university buildings are equipped with sanitation facilities with handwashing soap and water.
     - The wastewater from the University is collected and sent to the Government wastewater treatment facility for recycling.
