How do we avoid the jaws of death – the point at which, unless we take action to change things, we will not have enough water to supply our needs?(...)We are particularly interested in specific ideas on how we could get this country to Waterwise’s ambitious target of 100 litres per person per day.

This means we work in a range of areas, including influencing and shaping policy and legislation; driving strategic and practical ambition in the water sector; designing and delivering research; media, campaigns and promotion; running demonstration projects; promoting water-efficient technology; helping businesses be more water-efficient; facilitating partnerships; brokering new solutions; and training water efficiency practitioners.

Our Water Efficiency Strategy for the UK

Waterwise’s Water Efficiency Strategy for the UK was developed in consultation with the water sector – including Waterwise Supporters and the Water UK-supported steering group. It sets out a blueprint to deliver a vision of a UK in which all people, homes and businesses are water-efficient, and where water is used wisely, every day, everywhere.
