***Description*** Webinar number 143
If you pick a continent today, whichever one you choose, drought or megadrought is likely to be impacting water supplies and water management. Asia, North America, and Europe are seeing large riverine systems and lake beds drying up with no end in sight.

This presentation will utilise the Colorado River Basin (CRB) of North America as a prime example of the impacts of a megadrought from a social, environmental and economic standpoint. Future projections will be addressed and solutions will be weighed, along with the balance between adaptation and activism. Can individual water conservation efforts make a difference in such a large-scale crisis?

As water utilities around Australia and worldwide promote water conservation through extensive public relations campaigns, climate change and other pressures on supply continue. Join us for a presentation of the latest research showing the most effective water conservation methods, including a summary of the costs and benefits of greywater recycling, rainwater harvesting, reservoir evaporation reduction techniques, wastewater reclamation, canal lining measures, and more.
