- Sustainability Problem:
According to UN World will face 40% gap in water supply and demand. World Bank estimates that world loses about 25-35% of water due to leaks and bursts(the annual value of this non-revenue water — water produced and lost by utilities — is $14 billion). Water scarcity will cause serious squeeze food and energy supply chains, and stall economic growth.
2. Technological Solutions:
Israeli start-up TaKaDu claims its cloud-based, a mathematical led software solution is integrating the water sector with “cloud computing.”
-The solution works together with utilities’ current infrastructure. Information from flows and pressure meters, GIS and SCADA systems, for instance, is collated, “mathematically cooked” turned into “practical real-time picture and priorities.”
-Utilities can use a web interface to efficiently find where leaks take place that efficiently locates repair teams.
-Provide efficient 24/7 monitoring service with prioritized analyze

3. Key Stakeholders and their role in the implementation:
-City stakeholders- Include their plan
-Government agencies-Legislate and helping private sectors to participate
-Water Utility Companies-Use Technology for their service
-Civic society- Connect and partnership with the stakeholders
-Citizens of the city-Be aware of leakages and require utility companies be transparent about water bills
-Financial Institutions-Financing water-related projects
4. Steps Deploying Technology:
Public-Private People’s Partnership is the key to successful deployment of the project.
– Government or city stakeholders include the technology city’s water utility systems planning and involve existing infrastructure, decide financial aspects and solutions.
-Encourage through legislation or regulation build prosperous environment for the utility companies to use a technology and financial institutions finance utility companies
– Within Public Private People’s Partnership educate each stakeholder how water scarcity could negatively influence whole energy, food, and economy
