with 🎙️ David Lloyd Owen, Managing Director of Envisager, Columnist for Global Water Intelligence, Advisor on several boards, and author of "Global Water Funding."
💧 In his Global Water Funding book, David Lloyd Owen discusses global progress towards fulfilling SDG 6, proposes alternative solutions to lack of funding, and examines the reasons why countries are failing at implementing safe and sustainable water and sanitation for all.
What we covered:
🍎 How the World is late not only on achieving SDG 6 but also on aligning to start working on it
🧮 How out of the three possible paths to solve the Global Water Funding challenge, only one is likely to happen
🍏 The ins and outs of Getting more Funds, Adopting adapted Water Tariffs and Doing More with Less
🌱 A breath of hope with Success Cases to replicate to set ourselves up to fulfill SDG 6
🧮 How numbers can be tricky, considering that only the 'best pupils' usually answer surveys and share data
🍎 How water is a political good that can serve much broader ambitions than just satisfy the thirst of people
🍏 How Denmark can be considered the international benchmark when it comes to water preservation and management
🍏 How Chile turned its entire Water Management on its head, thanks to political will - hence becoming another benchmark
💥 How the current level of Funding in the Water Sector not only fails to reach the SDG6 but also won't allow maintaining current service levels
💥 How non-utility water will surpass utility water when it comes to Funding by the end of the current SDG cycle, and how that may trigger a negative spiral, ultimately becoming an existential threat
🍏 How the lowest hanging fruit may be cutting non-revenue water, currently representing 77 liters per day and capita in the World.
🍏 Private Vs. Public, Decentralized Treatments, Reuse Vs. Desalination, Populism, next writing topics... and much more!
