Abstract
This article studies the methods used to overcome the water shortage in the countries of the Arabian Peninsula. Current water consumption is much higher than the level of the natural replenishment of water resources in the region. The main, but not the only, method of dealing with water scarcity is desalination.Such situation forces the regional countries to boost development of renewable energy and nuclear energy.
