Despite adequate water supply to sustain our current population, more than 1.2 billion people lack access to clean drinking water.
In 2014, the United Nations set a 2030 target for achieving universal and equitable access to safe and affordable drinking water for all.
The challenge is complicated by the complex interplay of profit, politics and pollution, along with climate change, population growth and agricultural expansion.
Water experts from around the globe discuss transformative technologies, data analytics and engineering innovations that could democratise access.
