We caught up with J.V. Emmanuel de Dios, President & CEO at Manila Water about building resilience in the water industry. 

“We’re starting to look at wastewater – certainly for an archipelago we can’t rely purely on surface water. We must ensure that the wastewater we treat can be reharvested to bring it back into water systems. This means we have to adapt to new technologies and make sure we have the best available systems to convert and reuse wastewater.”

J.V. Emmanuel de Dios will talk more about building resilience during the Day 1 Opening Plenary session at 9.25am GMT.
