Alternative Water sources in urban developments

Will we have enough usable water in the near future? A growing concern around the world is the fact that only one in every six people has sufficient access to clean water. It is, therefore, important to work towards supporting a water secure world where people have sustainable supplies of water. In this course, we will look into alternative sources or sustainable sources of water, not supplied from fresh water or groundwater, that offset the demand of freshwater. These alternative water sources can serve as a vital water supply to support water resiliency. We will delve deep into challenges and opportunities of each method and understand what and how is being applied locally.
