WCF 2021 Series: Accessing Innovative Solutions for Effective Water Management

25 Nov
Forums & Summits

Demand for fresh water is growing given the local, national and cross-border competition for this limited resource, leading to rising water stress around the world. In the Philippines, there is a need for the government to increase the water supply and sanitation (WSS) sector’s program to ensure resiliency and sustainability as it continues to face increasing pressures, especially due to the combined impact of a growing population and climate change. Innovation and technology have a vital role to play in addressing water scarcity and safety, water efficiency, utility operations, monitoring and treatment, and data and analytics. Such innovations are increasingly being explored by utilities and businesses to test and adopt promising technologies in order to develop effective water management.

In the fourth leg of the Water Challenge Forum, the experts will discuss smart, energy-efficient, and cost-effective solutions for effective water management as well as share their experiences and knowledge concerning water management practices.

With the theme "Building Partnerships to Achieve Water Security" the ECCP 2021 Water Challenge Forum Series aims to provide an avenue for discussions for collaborative efforts of the water sector stakeholders to support the Philippines with its water challenges and achieve the goal of ensuring and sustaining water resources for future generations.
