Metito, the global leader of intelligent water and alternative energy management solutions, has been named one of the founding members of the Water Action Platform, a new forum dedicated to collaboration and knowledge-sharing in the water sector.
Launched by Isle Utilities, a technology consultancy company, in March 2020, the Water Action Platform was originally established in response to COVID-19 but has evolved to encompass a wider range of topics, pooling experience and expertise from utilities providers around the world. The platform aims to gather experiences within the global water network to develop best practice responses to pandemics and similarly disruptive scenarios to the water industry to protect lives and livelihoods.
Piers Clark, Chairman of Isle Utilities, said: “Only through targeted global collaboration and coordinated action can we assist with the response to worldwide emergency scenarios. With support from global industry leaders such as Metito, this platform will become a hub for in-depth discussions of current water affairs and credible solutions and technologies that can contribute to a positive water scenario.”
Commenting on its crucial role as a founding member, Rami Ghandour, Managing Director of Metito, said: “Knowledge-sharing is a top priority for Metito. Through supporting the Water Action Platform, we are paving new ways for supporting utilities and communities around the world. This will minimize the impacts of plausible disruptive scenarios to the water industry - whether it be climate change, pandemics or others.”
Sponsored by leading water industry partners, the dynamic platform is open to all and can be beneficial to governments, financial and academic institutions, water utilities, technology companies and global industry groups.
A key feature of the Water Action Platform is a bi-weekly webinar which is available for public access. The next event will be held twice on 23rd July (7.30 and 16.30 BST).
