ILSI brings together health and technical experts from a range of disciplines to design and implement solutions for more efficient water use.

Many parts of the world are considered to be water stressed through a combination of decreasing reliability in rainfall and growing population, and the resulting lack of access to clean water has become a global health problem. ILSI’s programs help optimize the use of water existing supplies to improve lives now and guarantee future generations have access to safer, cleaner water.
