Oxford, England – By 2050 water scarcity will affect the lives of 5 billion people. Demand for freshwater is increasing rapidly, and the combination of climate change, the legacy of the COVID pandemic, a volatile energy market, and global supply chain issues only looks set to amplify this issue.

In partnership with the International Desalination Association, Global Water Intelligence’s desalination and reuse market analysts have designed the IDA Desalination & Reuse Handbook 2023/24 as the ultimate guide to help utilities and industrial end-users find strategies and partners for countering water scarcity and drought. With detailed profiles and references from EPC contractors, engineers, systems integrators, and technology & equipment suppliers, the Handbook provides a clear picture of how the challenges associated with water scarcity are being handled and by whom.

Published annually, the IDA Handbook is circulated to a tailored group of utility and industrial end-users and will showcases a wealth of high-value insights from those on the front lines of water security. By drawing knowledge and innovations from those who have faced similar challenges, it provides water professionals with the tools that they need to drive the industry forward and foster a sustainable approach to water management.
