Today 700 mio. - 1 in 10 - lack access to safe water and by 2025, 1800 million people will be living in countries or regions with absolute water scarcity.

Nordic Technologies provides solutions that enables people to get easier access to safe and clean drinking water. We have a wide range of solutions and technologies so we can put together a suitable water plant for almost any situation. We strive to secure safe water for as many people as possible and in combination with NGO’s, private companies and investors we aim to supply safe and clean drinking water to more than 5 mio. before 2022.

Serving the need of water is not about installation of infrastructure, but about the solutions you use to keep systems working for a long period.

Nordic Technologies is delivering water treatment solutions including long-term service contracts for groundwater, surface water and sea water.

CLEAN WATER AND SANITATION: WHY IT MATTERS

What’s the goal here?
To ensure access to safe water sources and sanitation for all.

Why?

Access to water, sanitation and hygiene is a human right, yet billions are still faced with daily challenges accessing even the most basic of services.
Around 1.8 billion people globally use a source of drinking water that is fecally contaminated. Some 2.4 billion people lack access to basic sanitation services, such as toilets or latrines. Water scarcity affects more than 40 per cent of the global population and is projected to rise. More than 80 per cent of wastewater resulting from human activities is discharged into rivers or sea without any treatment, leading to pollution.

What are the effects of this?

Water and sanitation- related diseases remain among the major causes of death in children under five; more than 800 children die every day from diarrhoeal diseases linked to poor hygiene.

Proper water and sanitation is a key foundation for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, including good health and gender equality.

By managing our water sustainably, we are also able to better manage our production of food and energy and contribute to decent work and economic growth. Moreover, we can preserve our water ecosystems, their biodiversity, and act on climate change.
