Demonstrating Water-Food-Energy Nexus through Water Conservation Beijing Capital Region, PRC

20 June 2019

Already home to over 23 million people, the Beijing Capital Region (BCR) continues to grow, and with it an increasing demand for water amidst resources in decline. ADB is assisting the Beijing Municipal Government to meet the region’s future water demand and is currently reviewing various measures to conserve water.

In this Tech Talk, ADB's Hubert Jenny talked about water challenges of BCR as well as a number of international best practices on water conservation, such as from the Netherlands, United States, and Viet Nam, and other proposed interventions, including the use of water-saving fixtures and labeling systems, recycling treated effluent, drought-resistant landscaping, and expanding urban wetlands and groundwater recharge amounts.
