"Water that has been used in homes, industries, and businesses that is not for reuse unless it is treated." (U.S. Geological Survey, 2019)
The progress and potential of Sustainable Development Goal 6 and how Space Technologies contribute
Transitioning from the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
The world of WASH (water, sanitation, and hygiene) has come a long way in 30 years. Between 1990 and 2015, 2.6 billion people gained access to improved drinking water, whilst 2.1 billion gained access to improved sanitation (Unicef and World Health Organisation 2015). That’s a lot of people. But is it enough?

Progrès et Potentiel de l'Objectif de Développement Durable 6 et Contribution des Technologies Spatiales
Transition des Objectifs du Millénaire pour le Développement (OMD) aux Objectifs de Développement Durable (ODD)
Le monde de l'eau, de l'assainissement et de l'hygiène (WASH) a parcouru un long chemin en 30 ans. Entre 1990 et 2015, 2,6 milliards de personnes ont pu observer une amélioration de l’accès à l'eau potable, et 2,1 milliards ont eu une amélioration des services d’assainissement (Unicef et Organisation mondiale de la santé 2015). Cela fait beaucoup de monde. Mais est-ce suffisant ?

European Space Agency’s “Water Scarcity” Kick-Start
Water is one of the most important substances on Earth and covers 70% of the planet. However, freshwater makes up a very small fraction with 97% being saline and ocean-based. While the amount of freshwater on the planet has remained fairly constant over time, the world’s population has exploded, meaning that freshwater is threatened by significant forces, like overdevelopment, polluted runoff, and global warming.
7th IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition 2023
The IWA Water and Development Congress & Exhibition is a forum for showcasing new science, technology and practical solutions across the entire water cycle that can work at scale in low- and middle-income countries.
With an overarching theme of
water, sanitation, and climate resilience – keys to a water-wise future
the 2023 edition will present solutions spanning water and sanitation services, the role of water in urban areas, the links between cities and basins, and the opportunities to achieve climate resilience.
UNESCO-IWRA Online Conference
The overarching theme of the Online Conference is “Emerging Pollutants: Protecting Water Quality for the Health of People and the Environment”. This theme was selected to focus the conference on the intersection of the science-policy interface when addressing emerging pollutants, and steps and mechanisms that must be pursued to protect the health of people and the environment.
The Online Conference will highlight the ways the world can advance knowledge, research and solutions for managing emerging pollutants to improve and protect water quality in a changing world.

7th Young Water Professionals BeNeLux conference 2022
The Young Water Professionals BeNeLux conference gathers enthusiastic professionals working on research, public sector and industry from the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg. This is a great opportunity to broaden your scope on water-related topics and create a network including different actors. This edition will be held at the Delft University of Technology, located in a popular touristic destination in the Netherlands famous for being the birthplace of microbiology under the discoveries of Antonie van Leeuwenhoek and Martinus Beijerinck.
Unpacking freshwater’s role: Climate mitigation measures in drinking water and sanitation services (Webinar)
What is the role of freshwater in climate change mitigation? This spring, Swedish Water House will host a webinar series diving into the chapters of the recently launched report “The essential drop to reach Net-Zero: Unpacking Freshwater's Role in Climate Change Mitigation”. The report is the first ever summary showing the connections between freshwater and climate mitigation, and how they are inextricably linked. The report shows that water is much more important in mitigating climate change than previously understood.
The 18th IWA Leading Edge Conference on Water and Wastewater Technologies
The official theme for the 18th Leading Edge Conference on Water and Wastewater Technologies (LET2023) is achieving sustainability through water technology.
The IWA Leading Edge Conference on Water and Wastewater Technologies is designed to be the place for sharing the latest insights into how pioneering science, technological innovation and leading practices will shape the major transformation in water management that is underway.
Master's graduate at the University of Oxford
Gabrielle recently graduated with an MSc in Water Science, Policy, and Management from the University of Oxford. Her degree had a large focus on freshwater, with areas of study including drinking water accessibility, wastewater management, water quality, environmental policy, and water in healthcare. Her dissertation focused on freshwater quality and was an evaluation of freshwater pollution in England’s rivers, primarily focusing on the Rivers Thames and Cherwell. It also included an analysis of the environment policy within the UK that pertains to pathogen pollution.
