Please join us for the speech “Will the world be running out of water by 2050?” with guest speaker Robert Hauser from Z├╝rcher Kantonalbank (ZKB)

About the speech
At present, 2.5 billion people suffer from water stress and significantly more will be affected by 2050. The reasons for the growing water stress lies primarily in the increasing water consumption due to population and prosperity growth. Global warming also has a negative impact on water availability in many regions. If less water is available, demand will have to fall as well since the supply of water is limited by the hydrological cycle. There is no substitute for water. Adapting water infrastructures to water availability and decoupling water demand from economic growth will be a major challenge in the 21st century.
