WATER LOSS ASIA 2018
According to the United Nations, water consumption globally will increase by up to 30% by 2020, and that is just two years away. Countries who are already facing water stress would, by now be facing a widening supply gap. As you are reading this, 25% – 50% of all treated and distributed water around the globe, is lost due to leakages, theft, ineffective billing, poor pressure management, old and deteriorating infrastructure, etc.
Water Utilities understands the urgency of NRW management. Reducing NRW is one of the crucial steps to help cities and countries meet future demand. It is not uncommon now to witness acute water shortage in cities around the world, sometimes even threatening to cut supply to an entire city due to prolonged drought, climate change, population growth, etc. Water Utilities now face tough challenges to ensure sustainable water supply. Bringing down NRW and maintaining a low NRW is top priority for many water utilities. However, achieving low NRW is not an easy feat.
Water Loss Asia 2018 aims to bridge the gap, engaging Government, Water Utilities, Industry and Research Institutes (quadruple helix partnership) to spotlight NRW challenges faced by Asian Utilities, sharing of success (and not so successful) stories, learn how to achieve successful NRW reduction through a holistic approach, discover how to ensure continuous success, what are the latest innovative technologies available, and many other knowledge sharing opportunities throughout the event.
