Complete Title: 
Waqf for water
IUCN Publication
Abstract: 

This 8-minute video film promotes new prospects for innovative funding of water projects that can be of benefit to the water critical crisis in the region. According to the video, the Middle East and North Africa region is the most arid in the world and water resources are consequently very sparse. Of the total area of 14 million km², more than 87 % is desert. Although the region is home to 5 % of the world’s population, it has less than 1 % of the world’s renewable fresh water resources, therefore sustainable and unrestricted funds would be needed to finance such large-scale, regional water projects.
