Population growth, and rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing countries will increase water demand globally at a high rate and will put more pressure in the already stressed fresh water resources. At the same time, climate change makes rainfall less predictable and droughts more common. As a result, the growing scarcity of freshwater was listed in 2015 by the World Economic Forum as the largest global risk in terms of potential impact over the next decade.
On this context, water management has become a top priority in every country, increasing research and development in the water sector. New technologies and techniques to obtain fresh water have emerged in the last decades but they are still evolving.
At ECOS, we work on the different stages of the water cycle, to improve and optimize the different stages while protecting the environment. The range of our services varies from impact assessment and marine outfall design to outfall discharge monitoring.
