Wider uptake of water-smart solutions​

To ensure clean water, food and good living conditions for all, we must utilize more of the resources in water. And it is not necessarily a question of technology, today the barriers are just as often regulations and lack of business models. 

WIDER UPTAKE brings together researchers, water utilities and private industries in five countries. The aim is to find the best possible use of water resources, reduce carbon emissions and develop sustainable business models.

Smart use of water and resources from the water sector can create green industries and jobs and contribute to achieving the UN sustainable development goals.
