Predictions are that in the coming decades more than half of all global challenges will be related to water issues both on the wet and on the dry side. The economic damage associated with these water issues will increase to billions of Euros. Hence the magnitude and the character of these water related challenges are so huge that we cannot feel safe with technologies from the past. We have to find new, integrated, multi-disciplinary solutions.
