Les Lampe, Global Resource Practice Lead at Black & Veatch, explains the benefits of a reduce-reuse-recover strategy for a sustainable water supply. Learn more: http://bv.com/reports TRANSCRIPT One of the things that we are seeing from global perspective is that you have common challenges, although there are some variations from region to region around the world. There are very similar challenges and similar solutions. You are getting into ocean desalting, reuse of wastewaters, energy efficiency, just an overall sustainability, reliability component. We're finding that sustainability planning is becoming more and more of a standard for water utilities, not only domestically but around the world, as water supplies become more limited and they have to use waters of impaired quality. For forward looking utilities wanting to embrace the concepts of sustainability, we look at reducing the amount of resource you need, reusing what you can, and recovering every aspect that you can as well too. What that leads to is a theme of resilience. You are prepared for the unexpected, whatever that might be.

In just five decades, Singapore has overcome water shortages despite its lack of natural water resources and pollution in its rivers. Driven by a vision of what it takes to be sustainable in water, Singapore has been investing in research and technology. Today, the nation has built a robust, diversified and sustainable water supply from four different sources known as the Four National Taps (water from local catchment areas, imported water, reclaimed water known as NEWater and desalinated water). By integrating the system and maximising the efficiency of each of the four taps, Singapore has ensured a stable, sustainable water supply capable of catering to the country’s continued growth.

This technology would enable communities to produce their own water filters using biomass nanofibers, making clean water more accessible and affordable Description: The world's population is projected to increase by 2-3 billion over the next 40 years. Already, more than three quarters of a billion people lack access to clean drinking water and 85 percent live in the driest areas of the planet. Those statistics are inspiring chemist Ben Hsiao and his team at Stony Brook University. With support from the National Science Foundation (NSF), the team is hard at work designing nanometer-scale water filters that could soon make clean drinking water available and affordable for even the poorest of the poor. Traditional water filters are made of polymer membranes with tiny pores to filter out bacteria and viruses. Hsiao's filters are made of fibers that are all tangled up, and the pores are the natural gaps between the strands. The team's first success at making the new nanofilters uses a technique called electrospinning to produce nanofibers under an electrical field. Hsaio's team is also looking to cut costs even further by using "biomass" nanofibers extracted from trees, grasses, shrubs -- even old paper. Hsiao says it will be a few years yet before the environmentally friendly biomass filters are ready for widespread use in developing countries, but the filters will eliminate the need to build polymer plants in developing areas. Ultimately, those filters could be produced locally with native biomass or biowaste. The research in this episode was supported by NSF award #1019370, Breakthrough Concepts on Nanofibrous Membranes with Directed Water Channels for Energy-Saving Water Purification.

For many villagers in India, collecting and carrying water is part of their daily routine. However, villagers often have to walk several kilometers to collect water necessary for themselves and their families, sometimes walking several times a day. Recognizing the hardship of the villagers, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham Chancellor, Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi, encouraged faculty, staff, and students from the Amrita Center for Wireless Networks and Applications, the Department of Civil Engineering, and the Amrita Center for International Programs at Amrita University to work with members of Amrita Self Reliant Villages (ASeRve) to build water distribution systems for more effective water use and management.

What we have been taught: We all learn or should learn about the importance and value of water. Water Primer Video is on the value of water. For those who have not been fortunate for this learning experience in school, there are numerous stakeholder knowledge enhancement programs which are either conducted at ground level, field level, as stakeholders compound and more recently on the web via internet. What we need to Know and Appreciate: There is much more to know about water. Safeguarding the god given water is of prime importance for us to ensure global sustainability. Over 80% of the Sustainable Development Goals of UNESCO is dependent on the Sustainable Development of Water Resources. In a world where we press forward with new infrastructure development activities such as building of roads, buildings, water supply schemes, cities, dams, canals and irrigation systems, the most important factor is the sustainable development of water infrastructure. Well designed, implemented and maintained water infrastructure are the key to safeguard our precious water and the environment. It is time to find out what water infrastructure are, and what happens when water infrastructure does not support the sustainability of water and the environment.

Sustainable water resource development & management initiative in Wahegaon village of Paithan A short film by Aftab Films Aurangabad Mr. Sanjeev Chadha, President, Middle East and Africa, PepsiCo Inc .Annie Kishen Director - Corporate Communications & CSR PepsiCo India Pepsico India & ADI ChandigarhProject Mr. Sanjeev Chadha, President, Middle East and Africa, PepsiCo Inc inaugurated 13 check-dams, or Water Harvesting Structures in Wahegaon village Paithan Dist Aurangabad Maharashtra India After assessing several areas near our beverage manufacturing locations, PepsiCo determined that the creation of check-dams would be the best way to manage and rejuvenate the water supply. As an example, in Paithan we worked with the local Panchayat (municipality), as well as community members – mostly women – in planning and executing the project. This was key, as they assumed ownership of the maintenance of the 13 check-dams, or Water Harvesting Structures. At the project’s start, we expected that our efforts would bring economic benefits to farmers through increased crop yields. It turned out we were right. Not only have water levels significantly risen throughout Paithan, but also old, dry wells are no longer barren. Neither are the vast fields, which are now teeming with crops. In fact, in just three months following implementation, farmers began earning as much as an incremental Rs.6,000 an acre per month.

ICPDR - International Commission for Protection of Danube River The International Commission for the Protection of the Danube River (ICPDR) is an International Organisation consisting of 14 cooperating states and the European Union. Since its establishment in 1998, the ICPDR has grown into one of the largest and most active international bodies of river basin management expertise in Europe. The ICPDR deals not only with the Danube itself, but also with the whole Danube River Basin, which includes its tributaries and the ground water resources. The ultimate goal of the ICPDR is to implement the Danube River Protection Convention (DRPC) and make it a living tool. Its ambitious mission is to promote and coordinate sustainable and equitable water management, including conservation, improvement and rational use of waters for the benefit of the Danube River Basin countries and their people. The ICPDR pursues its mission by making recommendations for the improvement of water quality, developing mechanisms for flood and accident control, agreeing standards for emissions and by assuring that these are reflected in the Contracting Parties' national legislations and applied in their policies.
