Our CEO, Dr Sundram spoke on 13 Dec at an academic forum on “Water Governance in Asia” at the University of Gadjah Mada in Yogyakarta, Indonesia. His main point was that this multifaceted issue needs to be addressed with urgency due to increasing water scarcity and pollution and degradation of water quality exacerbated by urbanization, climate change, unsustainable agriculture practices, poor waste management, etc. It will have a huge impact on public health and the economy if coordinated actions are not taken at the country and regional levels.
