Water once again identified as a top global risk

09-02-2018

According to the 2018 Global Risks Report released by the World Economic Forum, water has been named one of the top five global risks in the world for the seventh consecutive year in a row. As the report noted, there has been “a significant decline in the available quality and quantity of fresh water, resulting in harmful effects on human health and/or economic activity.”

But that should not be a surprise to anyone, seeing as how water can so negatively affect a city, with Cape Town likely to run out of water soon.

But, however, the increased frequency of these crises are now driving research teams and water experts to analyse landscapes in order to develop emergency water management solutions, including funding sources, mobile solutions, and new water supplies.
