Covering more than two-thirds of the Earth’s surface, water is the lifeblood of our civilisations, economies and communities. We use it to move money, goods and people around the world, to grow food and to generate power. It is essential to our development – and its conservation is key to our hopes of a safe, clean and healthy future.
Join us as we explore how this finite life-sustaining resource may be preserved for infinite uses and what best practices can ensure clean and adequate water for people, industry and the planet.
