“3Ws: Water, Wealth, Wisdom”
This lecture gives a new perspective of the nature, function and management of water and the water industry to modern society after the Fukushima plant nuclear tragedy. Water cannot be regarded as merely a source of drinking, treatment and irrigation but it is also a source of wealth and economic sustainability.
The development of current water science and technology could address water crisis in a more effective and productive manner irrespective of geographical borders or socio-economic status.
From a holistic perspective, knowledge and ability to manage water can also enhance interest and commitment toward sustainability.
