Demand for raw materials, including water, is exploding as a result of demographic growth, rising living standards and climate change. As we are all aware, we cannot endlessly draw on the natural environment – a number of shortages are already making themselves felt and the situation will only accentuate in the coming years. The growth model based on linear consumption (extract-use-throw away) has reached its limits.
Access to water is a key factor in the growth of entire economies, cities and many different industries. Yet we cannot address water issues without looking at the global picture: water, waste and energy must be addressed jointly to optimize their management and capitalize on their immense value creation potential.
Resources 2050 will gather key experts on Climate Change, Water and Circular economy with industry testimonials that have deployed responsible practices at every stage of the value chain and water cycles that work in harmony with local ecosystems and communities in Asia.
