According to the United Nations, around 1.2 billion people, or almost one-fifth of the world’s population, live in areas of physical water scarcity, and 500 million people are approaching this situation.[i] However, an even more troubling statistic is that another 1.6 billion people, or almost one quarter of the world’s population, face economic water shortage – this is largely due to both severe weather patterns and the infrastructural inability for countries and governments to effectively take water from rivers, aquifers and other sources, and deliver it to the consistently growing list of end users (i.e. household water consumers).
An article in Global Water Intelligence profiles the plans of Suez Environnment in the water sector, and discusses the development of “new service models” to complement Suez’s core activities in the water sector.

As the IWA World Water Congress wraps up in Montreal, we are enthusiastic about the great recognition Thames Water and TaKaDu have received from the IWA’s Sustanability Specialty Group.
The 2010 Sustainability prize was given for innovation in the practical realization of sustainable urban water management, recognizing the implementation of TaKaDu’s Water Infrastructure Monitoring at Thames Water, in the UK.
This morning TaKaDu chaired an IWA Industry Forum entitled “Smart Water Networks: Data-driven solutions for water networks management”. We were joined by executives from three solution vendors from across the value chain: Telvent – a leader in data aggregation and visualization, Echologics – a pioneer in advanced acoustic analysis, and Hetek – a Canadian resource-loss management provider. Our own Haggai Scolnicov, TaKaDu’s CTO, represented the Water Infrastructure Monitoring angle in this lively discussion.
TaKaDu’s Founder and CEO, Amir Peleg, a 2011 World Economic Forum Technology Pionner, is attending “Summer Davos” in Tianjin and will be participating in an IdeasLab session titled “The Next Wave of Green”.
This session featuring the Forum’s Technology Pioneers will look closely at green solutions, including smart water grids, fuel cells, next-generation lithium-ion batteries, eco-friendly materials, and more.
We’re a little late to blog on Amir’s participation in the Lux Executive Summit, April 25-27. Lux research has been covering what they call the “Hydrocosm” for some time, looking at the various technologies that fit in and around the management of the entire water value chain – from water production, to distribution and eventually treatment and re-use. As the hydrocosm evolves, many approaches will come of age.
