Water tight 2012
The era of cheap water is over
The aim of this report is to highlight the top issues that Deloitte's Global Energy & Resources group regard as most important for the water sector.
The growing demand for water is making conservation and efficient use central issues, particularly as governments, utilities and the private sector come under increasing pressure to be stewards of this precious and shared resource. This report examines how major global trends such as population growth, increasing economic development and urbanization, coupled with the changes in climate patterns, underscore the importance of effective public policy and private sector water stewardship in managing this finite and shared resource.
