About theresearch
Water for all?
is an Economist Intelligence Unit report,sponsored by Oracle, which looks at the relative preparednessof water utilities across ten major markets—the US, Canada,UK, Australia, France, Spain, Brazil, Russia, India andChina—to meet future water supply challenges to 2030. It highlights potential risks and shortfalls, while also outliningthe broad nature of the responses by utilities to these risksand shortfalls.To support this study, the Economist Intelligence Unit conducted a survey of 244 senior water utility executives acrossthe ten countries under review. All respondents hailed fromthe management function of their businesses, with close toone-half (45%) consisting of C-suite executives. Organisationsof all sizes were polled: 13% have annual revenue in excess
of US$1bn, while 40% are rms with under US$250m in
revenue. Nearly one-half (48%) are owned by either the stateor a local municipality; the balance are privately owned,barring 6% which operate as a public-private partnership.The companies polled operate across the water supply chain:for example, 72% operate water distribution networks; 51%operate water production facilities; and 34% handle watersewage and treatment.
To complement the survey ndings, the Economist Intelligence
Unit also conducted wide-ranging desk research and in-depthinterviews with a variety of experts and executives. We wouldlike to thank the following for their time and insight (listedalphabetically by organisation):
