The 2030 Water Resources Group in collaboration with Arup has identified examples of initiatives that have been implemented to manage water scarcity.

Inspire action

So far 40 best practices from around the world, bundled in an online catalogue of case studies, have inspired action by leading industry and policy makers.

A recent call for additional case studies will enrich the existing catalogue with many more examples of what worked.

Mobilizing the sector

In this talk, Anders Berntell, Executive Director of 2030 WRG and Mark Fletcher, Global Water Director of Arup will discuss how we can mobilize the water sector to contribute relevant best practices and how regions can learn and benefit from them.

The purpose of this online catalogue is to report and catalogue examples, expertise, advice and innovations in water demand and supply management improvement across key sectors and technologies. We hope that it will ultimately become a useful open source instrument for leading industry, policy and decision makers in their interventions to help manage scarce water resources more effectively.
