Intelligent solutions for the world's most valuable commodity: water.

INITIATIVE SUMMARY

With rapid urbanisation - nearly 70% of the world's population lives in cities - it is estimated that almost half of the population will live in water stressed areas by 2025. This means that water will become one of the biggest expenses for cities in the future and will directly impact economies.
