Theme – Catching Up With Urbanisation

Catching Up With Urbanisation Water is a basic human right and should be available to all. The less we have to worry about the availability, quality and cost of water the better human lives and human societies become. Yet in many areas around the world, urbanisation has outpaced the supply of public services such as water and electricity. Aging infrastructure and water resources are coming under increasing pressure. New technologies and sustainable water management practices are needed to ensure that current and future water demands for all can be met. During the Water Summit will we discuss how multidisciplinary science, technology, policy and innovation can improve access to water and how we can achieve this together.
