SamenvattingWater scarcity pertains to freshwater resources that are unable to meet demands. Yemen is considered the most water scarce, and poorest Middle Eastern country. Unemployment rates are high, agriculture is high-water consuming, the climate is mainly arid and dry, and the government lacks capital to implement major investments to mitigate water scarcity. Currently, desalination and wastewater treatment plants are operative, but are not sufficient measures. An inventory of water scarcity mitigation measures used in other water scarce countries and locations, and discussed in news publications, provides food for thought. Most of these measures are inapplicable in Yemen, due to high investment costs. Some, however, require low investment or have high investment-return rates, and may succeed in helping water scarcity mitigation.
