Quotes

...Professor Jim Hall said: "To tackle the complex issues involved, we need to build resilience to risk. It is an approach we are calling "the three Is". Countries need to focus on their institutions, infrastructure and information, and all three should be tackled together. The paper's conclusion is clear: context matters and developing more effective responses to water insecurity will require a significant shift in the way investments are understood and made."
"I would also like to thank the many partners that we work with across the globe, including MIT, and particularly the Victoria & Albert Museum for their support in preserving and promoting Islamic arts and culture.”"
"Say we're in a place that could really use desalinated water, like California, which is going through a terrible drought," Banchik adds. "They're building a desalination plant that would sit right at the sea, which would take in seawater and give Californians water to drink. It would also produce a saltier brine, which you could mix with wastewater to produce power. More research needs to be done to see whether it can be economically viable, but the science is sound."
