The Future of Water, The Planet’s Life Source
Our Science for All Talks continue with the title “The Future of Water, The Planet’s Life Source”.
Water is a finite resource that is fundamental to human well-being. It is at the core of sustainable development and is critical for socio-economic development, healthy ecosystems and for human survival itself. It is vital for improving the health, welfare and productivity of populations.
In our age drivers like population growth, climate change, land use change and global poverty cause precipitous changes in water quantity, availability and quality. Those changes in our water environment make water sustainability a challenging target.
By 2025, two thirds of the world’s population could be living in water-stressed countries if current consumption patterns continue.
What is ‘water sustainability’ and why is it so important for our lives? What are the impacts of current global consumption over water quantity? Can technology play a role for smart water infrastructure, renewable energy sources, and energy efficiency? If so how?
“The Future of Water, The Planet’s Life Source” will try to find answers to those questions.
