Global Water Summit

19 Apr. 2016 • 00:00 - 00:00 • Abu Dhabi, UAE

Water will be the fundamental factor shaping economic growth in the decades up to 2050. But it starts now.

The IPCC’s 2014 assessment showed the effects of climate change are already hitting us through the water cycle. From GWI's point of view, this means that, if we have any hope of adapting to these changes, it will have to involve a profound turn around in how we manage our water resources.

By 2050 our collective water challenge will be unlike anything the world has ever seen and it will run right across the entire supply chain from depleted ground sources through compromised consumer and business operations to wastewater treatment and reuse on an unprecedented scale.

It will also generate extraordinary opportunities for those with the right technology, partnership and financial solutions.

The Global Water Summit 2016 in Abu Dhabi is going to break new ground for the sustainability of water as a source of business and economic growth. The event will bring together people who lead the businesses that supply and use water and the stakeholders whose decisions influence the way those businesses are run. Utility leaders, government ministers, CEOs of corporations and their customers need to come to terms with this basic fact of life: that the state of water in 2050 is going to depend on what we do to make the world of water better – now.

Central question for participants: What the world of water will look like in 2050 - What will we be leaving behind for the next generation?
