UNEP Foresight Brief: Water as a Circular Economy Resource

The UN Environment Foresight Briefs are published by the UN Environment Programme to highlight a hotspot of environmental change, feature an emerging science topic, or discuss a contemporary environmental issue. The public is thus provided with the opportunity to find out what is happening to their changing environment and the consequences of everyday choices, and to think about future directions for policy.

The 33rd edition of UNEP’s Foresight Brief looks at how to apply circular principles to water management, and how circularity in water management is key to addressing both the triple planetary crisis and a global water crisis.
