David Lloyd Owen | Taking Water Seriously
“What we have a shortage of is money, management and policy, but the water itself is abundant.”
How can we use data to clean up urban water and sanitation? Because data can be used for good. For the last twenty years, David Lloyd Owen has had a mind like water. His successful consultancy advises companies, institutions and governments on environmental, competitive and political drivers in water and wastewater management markets worldwide. He has written six books on water and wastewater along with hundreds of notes and articles on water, waste management and Clean Tech companies, markets and technologies. From being an environmental pioneer in the City in the 1980s he has spent the last decade in west Wales. His grand ambition (along with one day writing The Great City Novel) is to demonstrate that high-class urban water and sanitation services can both be affordable and financeable.
