Drinking water conservation in the Netherlands: How can we change our behaviour?
Resilience Management & Governance
“The conscious and economical consumption of drinking water cannot be taken for granted. It is essential, however, because of the need to use vulnerable nature and available raw materials sustainably, and to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Furthermore, water is scarce; the dry Dutch summer of 2018 was a wake-up call in this respect for drinking water companies. How logical it might seem to conserve drinking water, it’s easier said than done.”
