1.8 billion people will live in water-scarce regions by 2025.
By the year 2030, the world's population is expected to reach 8.3 billion.
In turn, the global demand for water will increase by 30 percent.
Where Science Can Help
Science is at the forefront of ensuring the flow of water is enough. Dow envisions a world where water is not a scarce resource, but a well-managed one sustained by advances in separation, purification and delivery. Science, together with strong water stewardship, can preserve and restore the world’s water supply and ensure access to clean water for billions.
Dow has the ability to synthesize chemistry, physics, biology, materials science and engineering to address the monumental challenge of providing water for everyone.
