The Water Value Revolution

"Nothing is more useful than water: but it will purchase scarcely anything; scarcely anything can be had in exchange for it."

Adam Smith, The Wealth of Nations (1776)

Imagine if the great economist were to be proved wrong after 238 years? It would change not just the face of our industry, but the face of the earth. Where economics currently works against protecting, distributing and enhancing our water resources, it would work forwards. It would attract capital into the sector, encourage careful management of nature’s most precious gift, and put a premium on the technologies which enhance and protect our supplies.

It is not a pipe dream. The world is already changing.

Themes for Global Water Summit 2015

Bringing together the water industry

This year’s global water summit will focus on these four themes. In bringing together government and utilities leaders, senior executives from across the global water industry, pivotal corporate water users and investors, the ambition is not to dream. It is a revolution in the role of water in the global economy.

It may be happening anyway. In ten or twenty years we will be living in a very different world from a water perspective, but how much longer can you live under Adam Smith’s Paradox of Value? The purpose of high level events like the Global Water Summit, which bring together all the key players in an industry, is to accelerate change.
