London’s successful growth: Water briefing

An overview of the opportunities and challenges facing London’s water sector.

By 2050, London will have a population of over 11 million and require £1.4 trillion in infrastructure investment.

How can we prepare our infrastructure systems for a growing city? How can we ensure London is able to cater for this growth whilst protecting its environment, maintaining living standards and remaining an attractive place to live, visit and do business?

The London's Successful Growth Briefings seek to give an overview of the future opportunities and challenges London will face in each sector.

In London's Successful Growth: Water, the issues of water scarcity, flooding and waste water management are examined. The briefing sets out what we can do to reduce water usage whilst also preparing for more extreme weather conditions as a result of climate change.
