How Clean Water Week Puts Spotlight on Smart Cities for Urban Sustainability

2015 World Water Week is August 23 – 28, and experts and business innovators from all over the world are coming together to exchange ideas to develop solutions to the most pressing water – related challenges.

While access to clean water in developing countries is an essential conversation, many people are overlooking how smart cities and advances in sustainable technology can make a big  impact toward clean water in general.

An infographic was created by the New Jersey Institute of Technology that illustrates how smart cities manage available resources, such as water in an economically sustainable manner.

For instance, the graphic points out that a major challenge is diminishing freshwater resources. Currently, a staggering 89% of global population relies on improved water supply systems that lose about 32 billion cubic meters of precious water via physical leakage.
