The Concept The water, agriculture and energy are the biggest challenges that Kuwait is facing to ensure a better quality of life aligned with sustainability. Drinking water is a vital resource for this Country, being located at the junction between the Arabian Peninsula and Asia, with its geographical and environmental conditions that are characterized by arid soil and climate. In 1953, Kuwait built the first desalination plant in the world based on multi-stage flash (MSF) technology and now has seven plants producing 1.85 billion liters of water a day. The treatment plant at Sulaibiyah on the other hand, purifies 600,000 cubic meters of waste water, per day.
Agriculture is being developed mainly in three regions, focusing on the cultivation of palms and potatoes. Also, through the promotion of educational campaigns and other initiatives of various kinds, Kuwait is heavily involved in the field of food education. For its Energy, the third challenge, the Country is engaged in the pursuit of natural oil substitutes (solar and wind). Participation at Expo Milano 2015 provides an opportunity to acquaint visitors with the 2,790 square-meter pavilion, with both its big projects in these three areas and the results achieved through humanitarian contributions and international cooperation in transport, agriculture, water, irrigation, telecommunications, education and health.
