United Nations World Water Day 2017: Wastewater

We are excited to note that on SWIM’s 10th Anniversary, the focus of World Water Day 2017 is Wastewater.  A report titled Wastewater – the Untapped Resource will be issued by the United Nations Water Assessment Program on March 22, 2017. “The report’s title reflects the critical role that wastewater is poised to play in the context of a circular economy, whereby economic development is balanced with the protection of natural resources and environmental sustainability, and where a cleaner and more sustainable economy has a positive effect on the water quality.”
