Indicators of Water Resources for Sustainable Development in the Sultanate of Oman

Auther : Dr. Ali S. Al-Balushi

    Providing qualitative and quantitative data on natural resources is essential for sustainable development, in particular data on freshwater resources and its availability and usage. The increasing problem of water shortage in arid and semi-arid and declining water quality in many regions of wetlands has increased the importance of water indicators at the present time. This paper discusses the available water resources in the Sultanate of Oman, in addition to detect the indicators of sustainable development in water resources sector and accessibility of such sources to residents mainly drinking and domestic purposes. The study also investigates the main challenges facing the water resources and government efforts to overcome those challenges. The study was based mainly on tracking researches and government reports related to water resources from various institutions of the State concerned, in addition to the statistical analysis and graphic representation of data. The study concluded that the Sultanate will face a water crisis which actually can no be overcome, unless the government exents more its efforts that exceed what is currently done. The water crisis will lead to occurrence of water shortage which will reflect clearly groundwater levels reduction, water quality degradation and declined levels of wells and springs, and seawater intrusion into coastal aquifers.
