3. Economy and education

In most of the industrialised countries, clean drinking water and functioning wastewater disposal are a matter of course. Thanks to tailored and professional management, costs can be regulated effectively and reduced if necessary. As well as contributing to the optimisation of domestic concepts, the BMBF intensively supports the transfer of knowledge and expertise in emerging and developing countries across the globe; the aim is to train skilled personnel and educate them in the environmentally sustainable handling of the resource water.
