Water is essential for human life, nature and the economy. It is permanently renewed but it is
also finite and cannot be made or replaced with other resources. Freshwater constitutes only
about 2% of the water on the planet and competing demands may lead to an estimated 40%
global water supply shortage by 2030.
This Interactive Library aims to facilitate information exchange between stakeholders interested in resource efficiency. A solid and comprehensive information base is needed to create the required integrated policy approach.
Stakeholders are invited to share their resource efficiency related views, findings and reports and/or to browse through the Library.
