Dedicated Project in Greece puts Mioty connectivity in the spotlight to address the urgent water issues in Greece.
As per whole Europe now, Greece faces water stress for years and in 2020 was ranked 26th in the world in terms of water stress levels. By 2050, Greece is projected to experience a temperature increase of 2°C and a decrease in rainfall by 18 percent. These changes could lead to more frequent and intense droughts, while the recharge of groundwater, which is crucial for Greece's water supply, may continue to decline. Although there are potential solutions to mitigate future water shortages, Greece will need to overcome the challenge.
One of the major challenges is conserving water. With measures to curb water consumption and improve water efficiency. Households contribute to 14 percent of water consumption in Greece, and the country has one of the highest rates of water usage in the European Union, with nearly 177 liters per person per day. However, there are numerous techniques and technologies available that can help reduce domestic water use and alleviate water stress.
