World Water Day Distinguished Lecture

EarthCheckBanyan Tree Global FoundationEaton, Hong KongHong Kong Polytechnic University and Marina Bay Sands invite you to attend a FREE World Water Day Distinguished Lecture called Tourism and Water: From Challenges to Solutions in the Asia-Pacific Region.

Event Description

With close to 500 million visitors estimated for 2014, the Asia-Pacific region is particularly vulnerable in what is an increasingly water-stressed environment. Limited water availability, ranging issues of water quality, and the potential increases to cost of supply, all highlight key considerations for planning and development within this fast growing tourism region. 
At this special World Water Day Distinguished Lecture, the EarthCheck Research Institute (ERI), in partnership with Griffith University and Ecolab, will release its second White Paper on Tourism and Water, called From Challenges to Solutions: Providing the business case. The Paper presents a business case for water efficiency and conservation measures to be implemented by the tourism industry supported by a wide range of operational initiatives to be taken forward across the region.
The Paper’s findings will be presented at the distinguished lecture to provide context to the global water challenge with reference to the specific pressures on water supply and demand in the Asia-Pacific region.
