Water

Water scarcity is the lack of sufficient available water resources to meet the demands of water usage within a region. It already affects every continent and around 2.8 billion people around the world at least one month out of every year. More than 1.2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water. At the same time, climate change is increasing the likelihood of severe flooding throughout the world. Circular Economy strategies have the potential to offer solutions: make use of alternative water sources, combine water management and urban planning, use water in cascades and harvest valuable resources from waste water. Find relevant showcases, events and news below.
