OVERVIEW

Mitigating the impact of urbanization and climate change

Climate change and rapid urbanization are two of the biggest issues faced by water utilities worldwide, along with aging infrastructure, extreme weather events and mounting concerns over health, safety and resiliency.

At Cognizant®, we’re using data, advanced analytics and artificial intelligence to help our clients better understand, preserve and protect the world’s water. From the delicate ecosystems and intricate networks that bring clean water to our homes to the responsible treatment of wastewater, we can help improve prediction, prevention and restoration across the entire supply chain.

THE CHALLENGE

Water ecosystems and infrastructure are under unprecedented pressure

80%

of wastewater is discharged into rivers and oceans without adequate treatment

60%

of wetlands, rivers, and lakes in Europe are not ecologically healthy

84%

decline in freshwater species populations over the last 50 years

240K

sq km of ocean ecosystems affected by excessive nutrient pollution
