Using wave power to make sustainable and affordable water for coastal communities and businesses

What is the Challenge?

There are nearly 1.5 billion people – including 450 million children – living in areas of high or extremely high water vulnerability. With population growth and climate change, water scarcity will affect over half the world’s population by 2050. Climate change and extreme weather events are compounding water stress and with less than 3 percent of the world’s water resources being freshwater, this is growing increasingly scarce. Over 300 million people rely on desalination for their water supply and this number is expected to triple by 2050. How do we find a sustainable and affordable solution to benefit people and industry in water stressed areas?
