New developments in the Philippine water sector are perhaps one area where advocates aspire to see more happening. It is without doubt that we see more talk than action on the country's sustainable water future. While everybody agrees that we can live without most things but not without water, there appears to be a low public appreciation on the importance of water to this day. While occasionally our farmers are hit by drought and people suffer from temporary water shortages as well as many have no access to clean water, on the whole no one feels that there is a serious water crisis hitting the country to be alarmed about and so this leads to a "why act now" attitude.
Setting aside this public attitude towards water, the flipside is the need of the private sector to increase competitiveness by managing resources well, addressing market requirements and ensuring that business is built on the foundation of sustainability and resiliency. Looking at the water sector from this business lens, offers a different perspective and motivation to see faster developments in the water sector of the country as well as to address water challenges head on.
It is in this race to gain a market edge among businesses and investors where we find more appreciation for water as it contributes to the aspired competitiveness and profitability that businesses desire. In this arena, water is appreciated and where business opportunities lie.
It is within this context that the Water Challenge Forum 2018 is being organized.
