World Water day – Green tips

I found the UN water report very interesting, I am happy to share green tips and new projects and initiatives already implemented to solve the water issue.

I like to face problems in a constructive way: approaching them from the solutions already existing and reflecting how I can improve them. This is something I always do, so today that is the World Water Day I would like to share with you the best practical solutions to help solve the water problems, the green tips every company and person should know and implement. I’ll try to give examples from around the world too, where different regions have different problems, or maybe not!

  7. The cooperation in the Danube / Black Sea area is an example of partnerships working at different scales to meet multiple objectives, involving different actors and within the frameworks of transboundary, regional and national laws. Lack of wastewater treatment was an important driver in this investment programme. In 2010, the Budapest Central Wastewater Treatment Plant began operation as part of the ‘Living Danube’ project. It ensures that 95% of the wastewater from Budapest is treated before its return to the environment, whilst also recovering nutrients and energy. Read more on http://www.icpdr.org/main/danube-basin
