The goal of the Value of Water for Italy Community
to involve the different players of the extended water supply chain (network managers, service providers, representatives of the world of agriculture, industrial players, technology providers, representatives of the world of agriculture, technology providers, software developers, etc.) and the reference institutions, with a view to establishing a constructive, permanent dialog.
Water is already a scarce and increasingly strategic resource today. The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) has estimated that by 2050, 40% of the world’s population will be exposed to the risk of water stress.
The availability of a fully efficient water supply system is essential for a country and its economy to function and be competitive. 10 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) introduced by the United Nations in September 2015 are affected by efficient management of water resources.
In this scenario, optimization of the water resource is a common goal for all the stakeholders in the extended water supply chain: the managers and operators of the civil and industrial sectors, the representatives of the world of agriculture, the providers of technology, software developers local and national institutions.
On the basis of these considerations, The European House - Ambrosetti has launched the first edition of the Value of Water for Italy Community.
