The worldwide implications of water loss


Share

GF Piping Systems is kicking off its Solving water loss for life webcast series this November, to highlight the challenges of global water loss, water scarcity, and the solutions available to overcome it. 

The International Water Association estimates that 345 billion litres of water are lost by utilities worldwide every day.

Climate change clashing with outdated infrastructures, missing knowledge about the location of networks, and the lack of awareness for possible improvements all contribute to this issue, with water loss causing many challenges for utilities and affected regions.

Driven by solving water loss for life, GF Piping Systems, the leading water network performance provider, along with urban developers, entrepreneurs, engineers, and scientists, will discuss solutions to make water supply more sustainable. 

The six-webcast series titled Solving water loss for life will start November 30.

Jens Frisenborg, Head of Business Unit Industry & Utility at GF Piping Systems, said, “What effects does climate change have on the water supply around the world? Which regions are affected, and how? How do utilities react? Together, experts spanning economics, science, and society will deal with these questions to begin the discussion series.

“First, we all have to understand the current water supply situation in the countries; then we can seriously talk about solutions.” 

Moderated by water activist Andrew Walker, the first webcast entitled How water loss is affecting the world, will feature: 

  • Stuart Hamilton, Chair of the Water Loss Specialist Group at the International Water Association IWA and Head of NRW Development at Miya Water
  • Rodrigo Riquelme, Water and Sanitation Lead Specialist from the Inter-American Development Bank 
  • Christoph Lüthi, Head of the Department for Sanitation, Water and Solid Waste for Development, EAWAG at Zurich’s Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology
  • Olivier Narbey, Senior Business Development Manager, Water Network Performance

The series will be available in English, with upcoming episodes to highlight innovative technologies and approaches from around the world, how digitalisation contributes to solving water losses, and how to bridge the knowledge gap by training the next generation of installers using immersive technology.
