2016 World Water Week theme: Water for Sustainable Growth

The Online Press Room is a space dedicated to journalists covering the news and ideas that emerge over the course of the week – both at the event and remotely. Here, we provide you with webcasts of the top events, important press releases and news as well as lists of press events, key speakers and experts.

To make your journey around these resources simpler, we have created a new section called ‘WWW Trending’. Here, press resources will be packaged under emerging trend headlines informed by the Weeks content. This means that you can get right to the heart of an issue by finding the connected people, releases and activities happening during the Week. WWW Trending will be continually updated, in advance of and during the Week, so make sure to bookmark us!

MadiDrop PBC

MadiDrop PBC announces fundamental shift in addressing safe drinking water and safe storage

At MadiDrop PBC, we’re changing the way that people think about safe water. It shouldn’t matter how water is accessed or how it is stored. The solution to water contamination should be simple to use, require minimal instructions, provide effective treatment at low cost, and keep daily and stored water safe from contamination. A big part of the problem is keeping clean water safe. Even if households have access to pre-filtered water or a reliable, clean source, the water often becomes contaminated due to poor hygiene or unsafe storage practices. Representing a fundamental shift in water treatment, MadiDrop PBC is addressing this major unresolved issue in water contamination – how to protect daily drinking water and prevent recontamination with a low cost, easy-to-use solution. The MadiDrop is the solution. It is an all-natural ceramic tablet that makes household drinking water safer to drink by controlling pathogens through the release of silver ions. Silver ions remain in the container, providing residual protection in stored water for extended periods. The MadiDrop also works very well with other technologies, such as biosand and ceramic filters, where recontamination is likely. One MadiDrop in 10 liters of water ensures that a family of five will have safe water on a daily basis for at least six months – no matter where they get their water, how they treat it or how they store it – for just pennies a day.

The Nature Conservancy

Water Share: Unleashing the potential of water markets to balance the needs of people and nature

On the heels of the release of its new report, “Water Share,” representatives from The Nature Conservancy will highlight the potential for water markets and impact investment to serve as part of the solution to global water scarcity. Water markets, when paired with creative solutions like Water Sharing Investment Partnerships, can help provide a more water-secure future for cities, agriculture, industries and nature. The Conservancy’s research shows that creative financing solutions to water scarcity could potentially generate total annual water sales of USD$13.4 billion per year, equating to market assets of USD$331 billion.

High Level Panel on Water (HLPW)

Representatives (Sherpas) of the High-level Panel on Water will attend this year’s World Water Week, participating in various events, and engaging with the broader water community. 

The High Level Panel on Water (HLPW) – to which SIWI is a supporting expert organization – aims to mobilize global support for the implementation of the water-related SDGs.

The HLPW was launched earlier this year at the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos by UN Secretary General Ban-Ki Moon and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim.

Water and migration

Increasingly, researchers and policymakers are seeking to explain migration and refugee flows in terms of water scarcity – often perpetuated by climate change. Is deeper analysis needed?

 

 

Water and faith

Water has profound symbolic meaning in many religious and local traditions and water stress is particularly acute in many parts of the world in which faith is a central aspect of individual and community identity.

However, development is not only about policies and investments, it is also about behaviour change and cultural values. In that respect, how can Faith Based Organizations (FBOs) contribute to the achievement of the SDGs?

Water and pharmaceuticals

Active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) are micro pollutants and are a growing concern around the globe. Manufactured to be stable enough to reach and interact with the relevant organ, many pharmaceuticals are not easily biodegradable and can remain in the environment for considerable periods of time.

How can relevant stakeholders balance the dilemma when patient health and safety overrule environmental considerations?
