    The World Health Organization (WHO) has warned that billions of people will not have access to water, sanitation and hygiene services by 2030 unless the rate of progress in water use is quadrupled.

    In the case of Costa Rica, although more than 92% of the population has access to drinking water in their homes, according to figures from the Institute of Aqueducts and Sewers (AyA), there are areas that have production problems due to the scarcity of the liquid.

    Against this background, opinion leaders, authorities and specialists will meet for the second consecutive year to share their experiences, success stories, technologies and innovations, in order to draw up a roadmap that allows a more efficient use of the precious liquid.

    This exchange of ideas will take place at the II Water Forum to be held on September 20th and is coordinated by the Water Footprint Group of the Business Council of the Pacific Alliance (CEAP), led by Mabe (Mexico Chapter) and the National Center for Water and Biodiversity of ANDI (Colombian Chapter), and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (COSUDE) through its Water Unites Us initiative.
