Abstract

The main phenomena influencing water resilience are climate change,population growth and urbanisation. Climate change is leading to both moreextreme weather events and long-term changes in the distribution of theworld’s water resources. Increasing droughts and flooding influence watersystems, and resilient solutions require novel innovations as smart processes,products and services.Too little or too much or too dirty, water is playing a major role in sustainabilityplanning across the globe. A water resilient society implies wide participationof civil society, including businesses, in actions to achieve social andtechnological readiness to anticipate change and influence future eventsaffecting our water security. The elements of a resilient water ecosystem aremanyfold, and when developed and demonstrated, represent a significantexport potential.This policy brief will discuss these wide opportunities and aim to pinpoint theniches for Finland’s cleantech export markets.
