WaterMicronWorld, the world’s leading supplier of Atmospheric Water Generators confirms launch of a Renewable Energy Investment Fund in weeks.
Flow Innovation Technology, a solution to help solve the Global Water Crisis.
Flow Innovation Technology, developed by WaterMicronWorld (WMW) is set to revolutionize the water generation industry, by producing Pure Drinking Water without “Humidity”.
Many of us take clean water for granted. But in some parts of the developing world, waterborne illness is both common and life-threatening. Fifty percent of the world’s hospital beds are filled with people suffering from water-related illnesses, and 6,000 children die every day from diseases associated with lack of access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation, and poor hygiene.

Climate change, population growth and industrial activity are increasing pressure on our local water supplies. When water levels drop, human health and the environment are put at serious risk. Lower water levels can contribute to higher concentrations of natural and human pollutants.

“Is Water the new Oil? Yes, absolutely” said the WMW CEO Mr.Rodriquez.
“Business and revenue potential is huge, from setting up a large scale water generation plant producing literally millions of liters per day without putting an additional stress on current supplies” he added.

Keeping this in mind, WMW is keen to develop its business specifically across the Middle East Region and worldwide in general. To help finance their expansion, WMW are planning to launch a WMW Renewable Energy Investment Fund within the next few weeks. Initially the offering will be limited to investors through private placement. Rodriguez further revealed “the business and revenue potential is huge, from setting up a large scale water generation plant producing millions of liters per day with Government support to increase water capacity to the current water supply. Or imagine working with master developers to provide an eco friendly and green alternative, generating water supply for the new developments without putting an additional stress on current supplies. We could even supply smaller scale water generation units producing 600 liters per day for individual households. Our technology provides us the ability to be flexible in providing water generating systems starting from 100 liters a day capacity for individual use, all the way up to large scale water generation plants producing millions of liters a day. The opportunities are endless”, he concluded.

“We believe WMW has the key to solving the global water crisis through FIT and world’s most terrible waterborne diseases, through the development of this latest cutting edge technology”, commented Miran Ellahee CEO of M-Energy Limited a leading renewable energy company, “Personally I believe, having the opportunity to invest in FIT through the Fund really is a once in a life time opportunity, as FIT certainly has the potential to be the next “billion dollar industry” in the Middle East” he further stated.

WaterMicronWorld (WMW) is the world’s leading supplier of Atmospheric Water Generators (AWG’s), directly and as an OEM operator, supplying over 70% of the AWG market. Atmospheric Water Generation is based on producing water from the humidity in the air.

Hi Thailand, Ecuador,Panama,Australia,Colombia,

 BlueGold Malaysia Report:
Over the coming years and decades, Pakistan will face the real prospect of serious food and water shortages if the challenges posed by climate change and the overexploitation of natural resources are not effectively and comprehensively managed. In this context, the manifold challenges that face Pakistan require not only a concerted strategy and significant resources, but also strong support from the international community.
In addition to facing serious political instability, Pakistan is deemed to be at significant risk from climate change, with issues such as rising sea levels, melting glaciers, floods, rising average temperatures, greater variability in rainfall and prolonged droughts. These problems have been compounded by decades of unregulated deforestation, which has had a telling effect on the country’s forestry resources. In 1947, at the time of independence, nearly 25 per cent of Pakistan was covered by forest. Today, due to the rapid increase in unplanned urbanization and agriculture, only around five per cent of Pakistan is forest-clad. The Consequences of such rapid deforestation have serious environmental implications, leading to soil erosion, rising saline-sodic levels and desertification. Although Pakistan enjoyed anabundance of water decades ago, it has since moved towards increasing water shortages. Primarily, the evidence suggests that the consumption of water is due to the growing demands of agriculture.
Pakistan, agriculture accounts for an estimated 97 per cent of Pakistan’s total water usage. Pakistan agriculture employs 45 per cent of the country’s labour force, making it Pakistan’s largest employer.
At present, less than 30 per cent of Pakistan’s total land area is dedicated to farming; principally water-intensive crops, such as irrigated wheat and rice, much of it grown in the fertile provinces of Punjab and Sindh. Pakistan has witnessed a decline in its arable land area over the last few decades; not just due to climate change but as a consequence of rapid urbanisation,deforestation and water logging, which have rendered vast tracts of arable land unusable. For example, according to the Soil Survey of Pakistan , salinity affected 2.8 million hectares of irrigated land, ranging from patchy to dense saline-sodic soils. Alarmingly,according to Agricultural Statistics of Pakistan , an estimated total of 6.8 million hectares is now considered salt-affected.
Moreover, due to inconsistent or inadequate rainfall, Pakistanis have traditionally relied upon either the Indus River Basin or subterranean aquifers to meet growing water consumption requirements. Estimates suggest that over 77 per cent of the country’s population is dependent upon the Indus River Basin for their access to water. Increasing evidence points to melting Himalayan glaciers, which appear to be retreating year by year,
however, there are also real fears about the future sustainability of the Indus River Basin. Similarly, there is growing evidence pointing to the depletion of several major subterranean aquifers.
The large cities like Islamabad, Rawalpindi and Quetta have all recorded declines in aquifer water levels of between one to 3.5 meters per year. If the trend in water consumption continues, the forecast for cities like Quetta, the capital city of Baluchistan Province, will remain bleak. According to some suggestions, consumption rates point to aquifer exhaustion within 10 to 15 years. In addition, apart from aquifer depletion, the threat posed to ground water has escalated due to climate change; in this case, rising sea levels that threaten saline-contamination.
The crisis in water security is increasingly having domestic and geopolitical implications. For instance, Pakistan has been compelled to allocate greater resources to feed its large and growing population from diminishing water resources, which is putting escalating pressure on the government to deliver effective solutions. Pakistan’s population, now over 173 million people, is growing by just over two per cent per annum and is currently projected to become the fourth most populated country in the world by 2050.
In addition, increasing water shortages have put strain on relations with India, which Pakistan has accused of diverting a disproportionate flow of water, in breach of the water-sharing accord in the 1960 Indus Water Treaty.
The biggest dispute between Pakistan and India in coming months is going to be the Indus Water Treaty. Pakistan is now in a precarious situation; water crisis is a phenomenon which is more detrimental to its security than extremism. There is a rapid internal population growth, the pie is shrinking and there are more mouths to feed. Adding to the worries, over the last decade Pakistan’s fisheries industry, which is an important source of food, has registered a declining harvest. Much of this has been due to: overfishing; pollution, particularly the flow of untreated industrial effluent and sewerage into the sea; and climate change, manifesting itself in rising surface water temperature, which is known to be harmful to coral and some species of fish. According to some sources, the fisheries industry in Pakistan directly sustains the livelihood of an estimated 185,000 fishermen, and, indirectly, that of another 600,000 people. Annually, the industry draws an income of US$1.2 billion. The decline in ocean fish catch has led the Pakistani Government to encourage, and invest, greater resources in aquaculture and inland fisheries to compensate. This has, in turn, become a major industry and source of food. Currently, more than 12,000 fish farms have been established nationwide and reportedly sustain the livelihood of several hundred thousand people. The incidence of major flooding, however, has had widespread implications for the industry and constitutes a clear future threat to its sustainability. Clearly, the situation in Pakistan requires greater international attention and resources to assist in managing the growing environmental challenges, which are complicated by the ill-effects of climate change. Although the Pakistani Government has dedicated considerable effort and resources to environmental management, the results have been mixed, and not always successful. Degradation costs are increasing year by year, and eventually, time will come when it will be nearly impossible to manage them.
Given that Pakistan’s future political stability is at stake, neither Pakistan nor the international community can afford to neglect the major challenges that lie ahead. The region’s future stability may depend on WATER. By Jenny WaterMicronWorld BlueGold

Pakistan is still reeling from flooding that caused one of the world’s costliest natural disasters in 2010, with millions of people lacking shelter, infrastructure in ruins and donations falling short of appeals. But worse may come.

The United Nations’ disaster coordination agency announced that the Pakistan floods caused damages of at least 9.5 billion dollars – the world’s third costliest natural disaster and killed 1,985 people – the fourth deadliest in a year of cataclysmic events.

But Pakistanis will face a water challenge of a different sort in the years ahead – the possibility of dire scarcity.

There are so many other priorities that the government is facing, particularly at a national security level, and to be frank, Pakistan’s government has never really made genuine, sustainable commitments to human development and human security issues, such as guaranteeing better access to water for the masses,
A Woodrow Wilson Center report titled ‘Running on Empty’ warned that Pakistan’s water situation is “extremely precarious” and that the South Asian nation could face widespread shortages within 25 years. He said last year’s floods exposed the government’s neglect of infrastructure, including dams, “one of the big manifestations of the water management policy failures.”

I think you could argue quite conclusively that if repairs had been done in a more timely fashion or more efficaciously in the last few years, that the damage from the flood would not have been as extensive as it was,

Aid officials say restoring water and sanitation services – already inadequate before the inundations – remain a priority six months after torrential rains turned the Indus River and its tributaries into destructive torrents. Floodwaters raged from July through September, causing nearly 1 billion dollars in damage to dams and irrigation systems and 93 million dollars damage to water and sewerage facilities, according to relief agencies. The U.N.’s humanitarian affairs agency says only 59 percent of the 1.9 billion dollars in immediate recovery aid has so far been provided.

Lack of safe drinking water, stagnant pools and wrecked or non-existent wastewater disposal are creating a health threat that is magnifying flood recovery problems.

The Red Cross and the South African anti-poverty group ActionAid have both warned that waterlogged and silted croplands are threatening subsistence farming and creating food shortages and that malnourishment – particularly among children and mothers – is growing.

The Red Cross reported that four million people lack adequate shelter, and contaminated water supplies in southern Pakistan are “creating breeding grounds for waterborne diseases.”

The U.S. State Department said that more than a million children are at risk of contracting infectious diseases, including waterborne ailments that were a main cause of death among children.

Aside from urgent recovery needs, donors and analysts say Pakistan must address its future water management practices if it is to serve its rapidly growing population of 170 million.

A flood damage report prepared by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and World Bank says the country’s water supply and sanitation services “fail on three accounts – quality, access, and sustainability of services.”

Piped water supply is frequently intermittent and not potable; only 35 percent of the population has access, at best for 3-6 hours a day in all but the largest cities. Sewerage services are inadequate with most households not connected to a system; 33 percent of rural inhabitants have no toilet,

Inadequate and neglected infrastructure is the legacy of Pakistan’s chaotic and endemically corrupt politics, analysts say. Efforts to take power away from Islamabad and give regional governments more responsibility over water and sanitation services have failed, the ADB/World Bank assessment says, because local officials “were not provided the skilled staff, management capacity and systems, and operating budgets to do the job.”

Pakistan’s civilian authorities have not been aloof to the need for improved water supplies and other infrastructure. Two years ago, Prime Minister Syed Yousaf Raza Gilani and U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon inaugurated Pakistan’s participation in a scheme aimed at streamlining foreign assistance in areas of health, agriculture, rural development and disaster management.

Local authorities also back ambitious dam-building projects – including two on the Indus, the Kalabagh in Punjab and the Diamer Basha in Kashmir – designed to prevent floods, generate electricity and provide stable water supplies. Gilani has told reporters that had the dams been in place, the country might have been spared the worst flooding.

But there are growing fears that the country is outstripping its ability to feed itself, and overtaxed water supplies are likely to fuel conflicts between competing agricultural and urban demands.

Irrigation practices are primitive and account for 90 percent of the nation’s water use. According to the U.N., Pakistan consumes 75 percent of its water resources, compared to 34 percent for India.

Meanwhile, the U.N. estimates that the country’s population will double by 2050. Urban areas accounted for 36 percent of the population, up from 33 percent with poverty forcing rural Pakistanis to seek greener pastures in cities.

More attention should be paid to urban water management to avert health and resource problems. “It’s not going to be that long from now when the majority of the country lives in urban areas, and even now, the government really cannot provide sufficient water supplies, clean water, and water at all to the current populations in the cities.”

Pakistan faces an imminent water crisis, with careless practices having a ripple effect on food production.

Intensive irrigation regimes and poor drainage practices have caused water logging and soil salinity throughout Pakistan’s countryside. As a result, vast expanses of the nation’s rich agricultural lands are too wet or salty to yield any meaningful harvests. By Jenny WaterMicronWorld BlueGold
Pure Drinking Water Technology

A water crisis is emerging which could have major implications for Pakistan’s economy and society. Effective management of this crisis first requires urgent mitigation and adaptation measures with close cooperation amongst Pakistan’s provinces of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Punjab and Sindh on the one hand and then between Pakistan and India on the other. If the necessary collaboration for cooperative management of the Indus basin water resources is not undertaken expeditiously, the resultant economic crisis could lead to a war with India.
The problem of water scarcity in the Indus basin is predicated partly on the inherent limitations of water supply in the Indus River System and partly on the growing water demand associated with inefficient water use in the process of economic and population growth. Unsustainable development practices have exacerbated the problem with intrusion of salinity into the ground water, contamination of aquifers with harmful chemicals such as fluoride and arsenic and pollution of surface water due to lack of an institutional framework for environmentally safe disposal of urban and industrial waste. An important dimension of the water issue in the years ahead is the phenomenon of climate change, which could take the crisis to a critical level.
Water scarcity can be measured by the availability of water compared with the generally accepted minimum per capita requirement of 1,700 cubic metres per person per year. In their book, Freshwater Under Threat: South Asia, Mukand S Babel and Shahriar M Wahid have estimated that the per capita availability of water in the Indus basin is 1,329 cubic metres per capita per year. This is significantly below the threshold requirement. Another interesting indicator of the water problem is the measure of development pressure on water resources, which is the percentage of available water supply relative to the total water resources. This ratio is as high as 89 per cent for the Indus basin compared to only 15 per cent for the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna (GBM) basin. This indicates the relatively greater development pressure on the Indus basin.
Worse, the utilisation of water for production is also highly inefficient by global standards. Water use efficiency is measured in terms of the GDP per unit of water used. In the case of the five top food producers in the world (Brazil, China, France, Mexico and the US) the water use efficiency is $23.8 per cubic metre. The figure is as low as $3.34 for the Indus basin.
The problem of water scarcity is expected to become more acute in the future due to the adverse impact of climate change. Dr Leena Srivastava, in a recent research paper, provides evidence to show that some of the Himalayan glaciers are melting more rapidly than the global average and this could increase the frequency of floods in the short run and increase water shortages in the long term by reducing river flows in South Asia. Furthermore, according to the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, given the sensitivity of existing seeds to heat, global warming could result in a 30 per cent reduction in the yield per acre of food crops in South Asia.
Science and empirical evidence make clear that existing water scarcity, when combined with the impact of climate change, could place critical stress on the economy and society of Pakistan in particular and South Asia in general: major food shortages, increased frequency of natural disasters, large scale dislocations of population and destabilizing contention between upper and lower riparian regions.
Effective management of this crisis in Pakistan requires close cooperation with India in joint watershed management, increasing the efficiency of irrigation and water use, joint development of technologies, sustainable agriculture practices and institutional arrangements to manage food shortages as well as natural disasters. When faced with a common threat, ideology must be replaced by rationality in the conduct of governance. If we fail to do so, natural disasters could trigger the man-made catastrophe of war.

Hi Malaysia and Thailand.
Malaysia Water Crisis will hit the country as early as 2014 if Malaysians continue to waste water daily.
Malaysian Water Association (MWA) president Ahmad Zahdi Jamil said domestic, agricultural and commercial consumers continued with their “habit of wasting and overuse of water”.
“If we continue with the current trend, we will surely be in big trouble by 2014.”
On the average, each Malaysian consumed about 280 litres of water daily, “which is very alarming”.
“Compared with Singapore’s 155 litres, the Philippines’ 175 litres and Indonesia’s 130 litres per person per day, Malaysia is among the highest water consumers in the region,” Also pointed out that Malaysia’s water sustainability index had fallen from 64 per cent in 1992 to 33 per cent in 2002..Whats next? Malaysia Water Crisis..
“If Malaysians don’t start consuming water sparingly, water companies are projecting a daily shortage of 476 million litres in 2014.”
Non-revenue water (NRW) was also a threat to the nation’s water security and sustainability.
“NRW is water that is wasted when pipes leak or burst. The cost to repair the infrastructure will be high and in some cases, costlier than the revenue that can be generated by the wasted water, so some operators will prefer not to repair them.”
One way to stem the negative trend’s growth was to increase the tariffs.
“If water is more expensive, people will not waste. The tariff in Penang is low while the tariff in Johor is high. Hence, consumption in Penang is high but Johor is low.
“Also, revenue generated from the higher tariffs can be used by water service-providers to eliminate NRW,” adding MWA would submit its analysis and proposals for solutions to the National Water Services Commission (SPAN).
