Ruden Water committed to the Water Action Agenda

Commitment 1
Today is #worldwaterday. The current water crisis can be felt everywhere in the world. One in three people worldwide does not have access to water. Achieving SDG6 requires the contribution of all sectors.

The Water Action agenda is being filled with commitments, reflecting a shared vision for achieving Sustainable Development Goal 6, and Ruden Water is not sitting back!

Ruden received funding from the Norwegian Space Center for a feasibility assessment for climate adaptation of low-lying islands – Remote sensing for hydraulic uplift monitoring.

Every year, The Norwegian Spacecenter (Norsk Romsenter) invites organisations to apply for supplementary funds. This year, 25 organisations received funding, and Ruden is one of them.
