S8E7 - Why do we have so many Good Reasons to make Wrong Water Decisions?
with 🎙️ Gonzalo Delacámara, Consultant on Natural Resources Economics for the United Nations and Water Policy Advisor for the OECD, the European Commission, and the World Bank
💧 Gonzalo is also Director of the Center for Water & Climate Adaptation at IE University, aiming to reinvent education and train the people who will change the World tomorrow.
What we covered:
🔗 How "Water" doesn't stop at the water sector itself but is heavily interlinked with the World around it and how "Water People" have a hard time figuring this out
☵ How nobody seeks Water in the end, but rather the benefits Water provides
👴 How the World's water institutions are not catered to the era we live in and how this has consequences
💵 How we benefit from nature's services and how those can be assessed in economic terms
♻️ How water circularity doesn't exist in isolation, and how the World needs to become circular first
🔖 How even if Water doesn't have a price, it always has a cost - and how we shall better account for that
📅 How getting our s*** together for 2050 will require breaking it down into digestible pieces
🤌 How the largest water challenges may well happen outside of the Water Sector and how to adapt to this new realm
🤖 Water trading, water governance, new technologies, planning for a World that doesn't exist anymore, the agriculture-energy-water nexus, the roadmap to real sustainability... and much more!
🔥 ... and of course, we concluded with the 𝙧𝙖𝙥𝙞𝙙 𝙛𝙞𝙧𝙚 𝙦𝙪𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙤𝙣𝙨 🔥
