Meet the water tower of West Africa, discover an ingenious ‘amphibious housing’ idea and see smart sustainability solutions in action – these are just a handful of ways Expo 2020 Dubai will shine a light on the importance of water.
According to breakingtravelnews.com, the foundation of human survival and life on earth, water is essential to sanitation, healthcare, education, business, and industry, yet climate change is making water scarcer, more polluted and more unpredictable.
As a global event dedicated to finding solutions to some of the world’s most pressing issues, Expo 2020 Dubai will showcase, in-depth, a range of ingenious ideas, innovations and best practices already providing solutions or with the potential to improve the lives of people and the state of the planet.
Many of the 192 participating countries are bringing their ambitious ideas to Expo 2020, where they will be able to collaborate and innovate to address water-related issues.
For example, Guinea, dubbed ‘the water tower of West Africa’ thanks to its location as the source of the Niger, Senegal, and Gambia rivers will highlight its crucial role in water access for the whole region, inviting the world to ‘tap into the source’ as they actively participate in developing sustainable solutions.
These events, interactions, and ideas will culminate in Water Week, beginning on March 22nd to coincide with World Water Day.
One of Expo 2020’s key thematic weeks, it will focus on ensuring clean and adequate water for people and the planet, and draw the world’s attention to water and its centrality to all Sustainable Development Goals – in particular goal six, which calls for clean water and sanitation for all, and goal 14, to conserve and sustainably use our oceans, seas and marine resources.
Through all these inspiring and informative journeys, Expo 2020 is a moment of optimism to shine a light on sustainable water solutions.
