Significant saving potential is believed to exist in all economic activities of the private sector of MENA countries. However this potential is hardly explored in systematic ways. Particularly in the context of a country like Saudi Arabia, where the cost of water production is among the highest in the world, the incentives to examine this potential should be high. In 2007, a group of private sector actors and with support from the Saudi Ministry of Water and Electricity (MoWE) launched Wafeer Initiative mainly for this purpose of exploring the potential of water efficiency in the Saudi Arabian industrial sector. This case describes briefly the experience of this initiative and lessons learned.
