Securing enough fresh water for all parts of society in a sustainable way while protecting water resources from pollution and overuse
Water is a scarce but essential resource. In a time of increasing population growth, industrial production and a changing climate, securing enough fresh water for all parts of society in a sustainable way while also protecting our water resources from pollution and overuse is critical. An integrated approach to water resource management and efficient methods for mapping the available water resources are part of the solution. In Denmark, water resources management is often handled in partnerships between the public and the private sector. This has resulted in Danish water consultancies building up expertise in solving complex water resource management challenges. Many of these are also working closely with local partners abroad
We invite you to explore solutions related to water resource management in more depth below, find potential partners, catch up on the latest related news and discover real-life case examples of how water resource management can help solve your environmental issues.

New EU directive map out how drinking water quality and supply can improve across the EU. Denmark has helped to focus on water waste in the revised EU directive aimed at ensuring consumers healthy and clean drinking water.
Kenyans living in arid or semi-arid lands can look forward to getting clean drinking water with half the usual downtime and less water wastage. The new partnership with Oxfam and Grundfos is supported by P4G – Partnerships for Green Growth and World Goals – to ensure better water supply in Kenya’s vulnerable areas.
Denmark has the experience and technology to help lift the big promises made at the several green summits during the autumn. The determination to live up to these promises is clearly marked by the visit to Denmark by the minister of the Environment, Climate and the Energy Sector from the German state Baden-Württemberg. The visit will showcase concrete Danish green approaches and solutions.
The next application round for P4G funding to partnerships with a sustainable business model is open. Funding of between USD 100,000 to USD 1,000,000 is available to either partnerships with a start-up or a scale-up concept.
Around 40 per cent of the world population is affected by water shortages, requiring novel approaches in order to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. A Danish laundry facility in Holbæk recently reached a breakthrough on the way to becoming the first “drinking waterless” laundry system.
The UN Environment released its sixth global environment outlook during the UN Climate Summit that took place in Kenya last week. The report argues that the world has the technological, scientific and financial resources needed to secure a healthy planet, but the need for immediate action is paramount.
Vietnam is one of the world’s largest producers of farmed seafood and they have plans to double the production by 2020. Farming methods are often traditional and to increase production this significantly, there is a strong need for new sustainable technology and for moving the production towards sustainability. Vietnam has undergone rapid socio-economic development over […]
On a global scale, less than half of all wastewater is collected and less than one fifth is treated. This and the threat of water scarcity underline the need for more efficient and smarter wastewater treatment across the world. This white paper provides lessons learned from Danish stakeholders within wastewater treatment.
Climate change is affecting global rainfall patterns and water distribution. Since there is approximately 100 times more groundwater on Earth than fresh surface water, it makes sense to exploit groundwater as a source of water. The aim of this white paper is to share some of Denmark’s technologies, tools and methods for groundwater mapping and hydrogeological modelling.
The exploitation of freshwater resources, population growth and the impacts of climate change calls for water management based on sound knowledge and sustainable practices. This White Paper covers the Danish approach to Integrated Water Resource Management and addresses complex water challenges.
In Situ Thermal Desorption (ISTD) – Soil remediation you can trust ISTD is a robust, proven and patented technology for heating the subsurface to remediate contaminated soil and groundwater. ISTD shows an unbeaten record of site closures. ISTD can be applied for in-situ remediation of all deposits (soil types). The technology is particularly suitable in case of stringent […]
In simple terms, Environmental Technology Verification (ETV) is testing, verifying and documenting the performance of an environmental technology. The aim of ETV is to validate that the technology suits its purpose and performs as claimed. This means that your environmental technology can obtain a quality stamp from an independent verification unit in form of a […]
