Just waiting for our experts to arrive and then we'll get going!
We're getting underway now and would welcome any of your questions. But I'll get started with Sylvia Lee of Skoll and Gary White of water.org
We talked a few minutes ago about how water insecurity is increasing in the world, with a world ahead where more and more people will struggle to access enough for basic needs. How worrisome is the world's water security situation?
Which areas of the world are facing some of the most serious problems with water?
Sylvia, so it's not just about too little water, but sometimes too much water, or water at the wrong time?
We talked today about how potential solutions fall into a variety of categories, but two of the main ones are technology and governance? Which is more crucial? Or do we need both?
Gary, so capacity to deal with the problem is as important as the problem itself in some ways.
Any particularly promising innovations or funding models that you're seeing to address water problems?
Or promising advances in governance, for that matter?
Okay, so technology is not the only solution but just one part of it.
Conservation is interesting. We hear that if we don't waste so much food, or energy or water, that is the cheapest and least environmentally harmful way of ensuring everyone has enough. How much of the water insecurity problem do you think conservation could solve?
