The 13th European Forum on Eco-Innovation: water sector eco-innovation in practice
The 13th European Forum on Eco-Innovation, which took place in Lisbon, Portugal on 26-27 November 2012, focused on eco-innovation in the water sector. Eco-innovation is crucial for the water sector because of looming supply problems. Almost half the world population (47%) will be living under severe water stress by 2030 if no new policies are introduced, according to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development. In many countries, it is already happening.
