What is water efficiency?
At Waterwise we define water efficiency as using water wisely by minimising wastage and making sure the water we do use goes further.

A lot of things come across my desk at the UN, but the Waterwise-BSI report Thirst for Change is the best I've seen in 10 years for explaining to a non-technical audience about water scarcity and what we need to do about it - whilst also containing an impactful level of detail. I run UN-Habitat’s work on wastewater and during my 30 years with the UN have worked on water demand management and pollution abatement around the world. I couldn’t agree with you more on the fact that the water crisis is not central enough to the climate crisis. Many congratulations on such a fantastic report!
