Water, Wastewater – Center Pieces of the Circular Economy

The presentation will demonstrate the key role water plays for sustainable development in all its dimensions – from an economic, social and environmental perspective. The content will be based on the UN World Water Development Report (WWDR) 2017 “Wastewater: The Untapped Resource”.

It will show how investments in water and sanitation can lead to the creation of jobs and sustainable development. Furthermore, the critical role of wastewater management as an integral part of the integrated water resources management will be discussed.

Wastewater represents an alternative yet reliable source of water and by-products (nutrients, energy, metals), therefore, it is a key component in the necessary move towards a circular economy.

Speaker: Stefan Uhlenbrook, coordinator of the UN World Water Assessment Programme (WWAP, UNESCO programme) and the Director of the Programme Office on Global Water Assessment in Perugia, Italy.
