About this Event

Water is an economic enabler. Harnessing the full benefits of water is constrained by three limits: hydrology, production efficiency, and risks associated with externalising water footprints. Each river basin is unique with respect to amount of rainfall and its pattern, rainfall-runoff relation, total available runoff, environmental flows, and other factors. Making the process more efficient comes with a price marking a limit on local efficiency gain. Importing virtual water to relieve pressure on local water resources requires second order resources such as foreign currency, and a political will to move towards ‘water and food security’ policy from ‘water and food self-sufficiency.’ Enhancing the global water use efficiency by means of trade has socio-economic limitations.
