In line with the ensuing World Water Day on March 22 — Water and Sustainable Development — QNET highlights the importance of sustainable management of freshwater resources.
Khaled Diab, Regional GM at QNET MENA, told Emirates Business, “As population pressures in the region increase, the demand for water resources rises. Overall, developing a mix of strategies that increase supply, manage demand, and reduce long-term pressures on water is urgent more than ever before, as population pressures in the region continue to increase.”
“Involving communities in adopting new strategies can increase acceptance of new water systems. Communities can be taught to maintain and operate water systems sustainably and responsibly, and can help determine what type of system best suits local conditions,” said Diab.
In 2015, World Water Day promoted the theme ‘Water and Sustainable Development’. However this year, the theme is ‘Water and Jobs’. Diab said, “With summer coming up in the UAE, hot climate will soon drive residents to drink more water to keep their bodies hydrated. QNET understands the importance of safe drinking water and with the HomePure water filtration systems, we can provide people clean, safe and great-tasting water.”
QNET focuses on providing products and services that help address some of the challenges caused by today’s urban lifestyle. The HomePure water filtration systems produce clean and safe drinking water for its customer’s well-being. It ensures good-tasting, odourless water that still has good minerals intact. Its 7-Stage Water Filtration System and the Eaze is tested and certified by NSF International against NSF/ANSI Standard 42 and 53 for the reduction of Taste/Odour, Chlorine, Turbidity and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds).
He stated that another step towards conservation is that the countries are adopting a variety of ways to encourage voluntary conservation. Many conservation messages have also been incorporated into school curricula throughout the region, encouraging young school children to do their part in conserving water in their households. He stressed that if the youth is educated at a young age they would inculcate the right values which will guide them until they become adults.
