Making Optimised Decisions about the Future

“The world runs on water. Clean, reliable water supplies are vital for industry, agriculture, and energy production. Every community and ecosystem on Earth depends on water for sanitation, hygiene, and daily survival. More than a billion people currently live in water-scarce regions and as many as 3.5 billion could experience water scarcity by 2025”
