EarthCheck, Banyan Tree Global Foundation, Eaton, Hong Kong, and Marina Bay Sands invite to attend a FREE World Water Day Distinguished Lecture called, Tourism and Water: From Challenges to Solutions in the Asia-Pacific Region,on 20 March 2014 in Hong Kong or Singapore (live stream).
With close to 500 million visitors estimated for 2014, the Asia-Pacific region is particularly vulnerable in what is an increasingly water-stressed environment. Limited water availability, ranging issues of water quality, and the potential increases to cost of supply, all highlight key considerations for planning and development within this fast growing tourism region.
On Thursday 20 March 2014, the Asia-Pacific tourism industry will come together with world-leading sustainability expects in Hong Kong (with a live stream in Singapore) to discuss how the industry can adopt a leadership role in addressing water stress and security.
Attend the World Water Day Distinguished Lecture to learn from experts about how you can start the journey towards improved water management in your organisations and within the local community.
