SustainableQATAR challenges you to test your sustainability knowledge and to inspire and motivate people of all ages in Qatar to act.

Situated in a tropical desert, Qatar’s water resources are scarce. Do you know how much rain Qatar receives on an annual average? Take a guess. It’s about 80 millimetre or 3 inches per YEAR! Again, that’s 80 millimetre or 3 inches. Per YEAR!

Yet, water consumption per person in Qatar is a staggering 500 litres per day – one of the highest in the world.

Here in Qatar, how much of a household’s water use occurs outdoors?

  1. 0-10%
  2. 10-30%
  3. 30-60%
  4. 60-80%

Check your answer and learn about water conservation in your home garden at SustainableQATAR.com.

The goal of the SustainableQATAR 52 Weekly Challenges is to provide easy-to-follow guidelines to live more sustainably in Qatar.

This is everyone’s chance to write our own personal stories in support of favourably position Qatar for the first-ever carbon-neutral 2022 FIFA World Cup.
