Technology for safe drinking water under water scarcity conditions

5th Regional Technology Platform, Barcelona, December 15th, 2008


Regional Technology Platforms (RTPs) are one-day workshops that focus on consultation of regional water experts and stakeholders. RTPs will enable intensive information exchange through personal contacts and dissemination of knowledge between the project team, operators, researchers, regulators and technology suppliers on a regional level.


The fifth RTP will take place in Barcelona, Spain. The conference will highlight the situation in water stress regions in Southern Europe and will discuss the challenges for the drinking water sector arising from climate change and increasing water scarcity.
