Our Credo

Envisager believes that affordable access to safe and sustainable water and sanitation is the least that any civilised society can offer. All policy initiatives relating to water and wastewater ought to concentrate on its universal availability, its competent management based on full or sustainable cost recovery and the belief that demand management is the key to its sustainable management. Water is worthless until its values are recognised—smart water is about technologies and techniques and the political and managerial will to deploy them. The 2030 Sustainable Development Goals are laudable and sensible, and unlikely to be achieved before 2050 without a combination of smart-led demand management and a ceaseless emphasis on capital and operating spending efficiencies.
