Future of Water

Water has topped the World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report eight years in a row, but neither companies nor consumers seem to be taking the impending crisis seriously enough. The Future of Water special report, published in The Times, covers how embracing artificial intelligence could make the water industry more efficient and questions whether new Ofwat regulation can turn the tide for UK water providers. It explores why people still consider water an abundant resource, even in the face of climate change and a growing global population, and examines how new corporate and social responsibility initiatives can help. Also featured is an interview with the World Economic Forum about their Water Initiative and an infographic on whether hydropower can help solve the climate crisis
