Pickingalpha has interviewed Christophe Yvetot, UNIDO (United Nations Industrial Development Organization) Representative to the European Union on water scarcity solutions. We talk about water, the most precious natural resource vitally important for humanity survival, which nevertheless has been polluted, inefficiently used, not to say wasted for many decades. With the global population growing at exponential rates, and with the existing ways of water application it will sooner rather than later become scarce. Apparently Governments, Businesses, Global Humanitarian Organizations and regular citizens need to concern themselves with the use of water, with solutions for water management from individual level to large scale industrial productions.
Unfortunately many businesses and their investors consider any technology transfer as a last and most expensive, meaning undesirable for them, tool to apply for any corporate changes. Trying to solve this problem right now UNIDO has mobilized all its’ resources to offer such business model in water management that will generate incentives in businesses to use water – saving technologies in their operations which would simultaneously reduce their operating costs.
Christophe Yvetot, UNIDO explains how this model has been tested and successfully implemented in a large number of countries, well known corporations and organizations.
