“Water is a finite resource.
Zero Water Day(s) scenarios are challenging people and communities in Europe and worldwide.
The public health community must seize the opportunity to prepare for Zero Water Day(s) through strengthening capacity and capability to respond to rapidly emerging emergencies as well as protracted crises.
Collaboration across sectors on water conservation and public health is key to tackling the consumptive environmental and extractive economic systems”.
