The science of water sustainability | TechKnow
From space, the Earth is a big blue planet covered 70 percent in water. However, a closer look reveals that only two and a half percent of that is fresh water, with only one percent being easily accessible to keep our 6.8 billion inhabitants alive and well. On TechKnow, we explore the possible solutions to address water scarcity through science, and explore the effect these new initiatives could have in the larger agricultural areas around the world. We also explore technological advancements that are having a quantifiable impact on conserving fresh water through innovation.

Sustainable Water Resources
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.

The Singapore Water Story
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.

Water and Society: Sustainable Use of the Essential Resource for Life - Steve Smith
HSP Summer 2018 Class Promotional Presented by: Professor Steve Smith Water is the most important resource associated with ecological and human well-being, economic productivity, and security. Stresses are placed on the Earth’s water resources by climate change, population growth, conflicts, and other social changes. Achieving a sustainable use of water may be the most critical issue of natural resource management now facing many societies. This course addresses the science and technology underlying sustainable water use. We will discuss water use within energy generation, domestic supplies, and agriculture while highlighting water use and modification along entire production and supply chains. Water use within agriculture, for example, accounts for more than 70% of the world’s freshwater use. We will also examine multi-disciplinary case studies that highlight specific challenges, successes, and failures in water use and management around the world today.

WATER..A DROP OF LIFE Sustainable water resource development & management initiative in Aurangabnad
WATER..A DROP OF LIFE Sustainable water resource development & management initiative in wahegaon village of paithan. Mr. Sanjeev Chadha, President, Middle East and Africa, PepsiCo Inc .Annie Kishen Director - Corporate Communications & CSR PepsiCo India Pepsico India & ADI ChandigarhProject 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: Sustainable Water Management in the Danube River Basin
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.
