The latest issue of Stockholm Water Front magazine (no. 4, 2013) looks at different ways of meeting the water scarcity challenge.
One is water pricing. To manage the rise in demand for water and to increase water productivity, incentives for using water more efficiently will be necessary. Water pricing is increasingly seen as a necessary tool.
SIWI’s Mr. Jens Berggren sets the scene by describing the intricacies of potential water pricing – how does one price one of our most elusive resources? The issue is immensely complicated, but necessary to tackle.
Water scarcity will also pose a major challenge to businesses in the future. The water crises in different countries are now firmly placed on the radars of corporate leaders as a potential threat to operations. Our guest contributor Mr. Stuart Orr from WWF tells us more about the status of water stewardship.
In connection with the theme for the 2014 World Water Week – Energy and Water – we will cover more aspects of mitigating the global water crisis.
