1.8 billion people will live in water-scarce regions by 2025.
By the year 2030, the world's population is expected to reach 8.3 billion.
In turn, the global demand for water will increase by 30 percent.

The Challenge

It is also a challenge ripe with opportunities. Water scarcity motivates us to develop advanced technologies and strengthen industry and customer partnerships to help provide the world’s population with access to this most basic commodity.
