Korea Water Resources Corporation (K-water) is exploring ways to increase water-related cooperation and expand exchanges with Saudi Arabia in response to the climate crisis.
Abdulaziz Muhareb Al-Shibani, deputy minister of the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture, participated in the 6th Korea International Water Week held in Daegu on Dec. 6. During the event, he expressed great interest in K-water’s innovative water management technologies, including a digital twin-based integrated water management system, AI, and carbon-neutral water purification plants. Al-Shibani requested a meeting with Korean President Yoon Suk-yeol, proposing collaboration.
Al-Shibani stated, “Saudi Arabia is facing water issues due to its geographical and climatic characteristics and increasing water demand driven by rapid economic growth.” He requested K-water’s active cooperation, including the exchange of experts and technology.
