The 2016/17 Global Water Annual Review provides an overview of Arup’s water business activities over the past year and features examples of our work across the water cycle. The force of a changing climate has made its presence felt all over the world this past year, with widespread flooding on the one hand and severe droughts on the other.
In this year’s review we share information on climate issues and focus on events and projects Arup has been involved with, many of which are about sustainable solutions to topical problems.
We endeavour to add value to our work and consider the communities our projects affect. This is so important to us that it forms an integral part of our 10-year business plan – to have a positive social impact on 500 million people. This year our project work has positively impacted 294 million people, bringing us over halfway to our 10-year target in only three years.
