When compared to other cities in the world, how is Hong Kong doing in terms of water consumption? How well do we manage our water use? How much water does each Hong Kong household use compared to that in other cities? Is our water infrastructure smart enough? With the business sector consuming a third of Hong Kong's fresh water, what role can businesses play in conserving water?
Independent think tank Civic Exchange will share their recent findings on Hong Kong's water consumption pattern and impact, as part of a research project on modernizing Hong Kong's water management policy. This project examines the implications of increasing pressures on our fresh water supply, due to population and economic growth as well as competition for water resources in the Pearl River Delta region.
