Water security is now identified amongst the top three global risks to business by commentators such as McKinsey and the World Economic Forum. Even in the UK, water supply is a constraint on development in areas of SE England.
This group exists to help companies, researchers and other agencies engaged in the development of technologies and services to take advantage of commercial opportunities related to global pressures on water from climate change, population growth, rising quality-of-life aspirations, urbanisation and pollution.
The scope of activity covered by the group includes but is not limited to; transport, treatment, use and disposal; network management, leakage, sensors and telemetry; the protection of water and water-based ecosystems in the natural environment, flooding and urban water management and desalination. The interactions of the ‘water sector' with other parts of the economy such as agriculture, mining, sustainable future cities, energy, waste management, space technologies, and health will be part of the content of these pages, as will the recovery of value from water-based waste streams, (energy, priority substances such as phosphorus, metals).
