Water is running out as the world becomes more globalized and more energy demanding. Israel’s answer is “I2I” -- Innovation to Implementation, the main theme of this year's WATEC conference. Proposing solutions that can be implemented locally is the easy part. The hard part is getting those innovations accepted and adopted. To ease the process, Israel has created water-tech collaborations between Israeli cities and overseas cities facing similar challenges. Partnerships are already underway involving Italian and Canadian cities.
