Five mega water reservoirs – the largest in the world – have been built in Qatar at a cost of nearly $5bn.

They will each have a capacity of nearly 400 million litres of water, effectively tripling Qatar’s supply – a resource seen as vital for the nation’s growing population.

Al Jazeera’s Laura Burdon-Manley reports from Doha.

So many haters here against Qatar. Does anyone of you ever being to Qatar ? I don't think so. Qatar is better than Some Western counties let alone Saudis and rest of golfs and has millions of population from acrosss the globe which they deserve to be respected.

the idiot thing here is they pay those workers from Nepal little salary of US$ 150. Also give them poor living conditions. then they shout to us here lots of noise largest in world while workers there are suffering no enough water while they are working especially in summer.

I have read the commentary below…folks… People who don't get paid do not create these monumental structures. Slave labor can get you so far…the difference is in quality!

I always cunfused when people said qatar un paid their workers…have you ever research that qatar has very little population and more than 80% population are foreigner specially from south asia.

Btw, most of qatar project was built by foreign company from europe, america, china and south asia..so how can you blame qatar for laborer issue..why dont blame those company..

Adidas and nike made their shoes in third world country. They paid their workers so little..so you blame the country or the company ?..
