1.00 - 2.00 PM WORKSHOP 1 & 2
WORKSHOP 2: WATER IS A SENSITIVE TOPIC
Water scarcity and ‘day zero’ have been common phrases used over the past few years, for example, in South Africa and many other parts of Africa. In Kenya and Ethiopia, droughts are a yearly phenomenon, and yet we are not conscious and smart enough with water usage when available, with a lot of people lacking access to potable water in East and Southern Africa.
This session will shine a light on what sustainable water consumption means, and available technologies to optimize sustainable systems by applying the Circular Economy principles.
