WATER SEMINAR: Converting scarcity into opportunity 

Date: 7 June 2018
Venue: Crystal
Time: 09:00
Facilitator: Garth Barnes

It’s the world’s most precious resource and it’s under threat. Water scarcity has been accepted as the new normal. Water conservation has become a key asset – water production is going to be a massive market. Businesses that tackle water conservation and replenishment seriously, now, will be market leaders. The Water Seminar examines water conservation and production through the lens of economic opportunity and asks how the public and private sector can pull together to achieve sustainable water strategies.
