Defining water poverty and evaluating existing information and approaches to reduce water poverty
A part of the English water industry’s Public Interest Commitment is to make bills affordable for all households with water and sewerage bills above 5% of their disposable income by 2030 and to develop a strategy to end water poverty. UKWIR has asked the ‘Big Question’ of how to achieve zero customers in water poverty by year 2030 to complement this commitment.
UKWIR has commissioned CEPA and Sustainability First to support these objectives through a research project focussing on the measurement of water poverty and on its alleviation. This study is not expected to answer the Big Question, but rather provides practical insights and recommendations to water companies as well as for consumer bodies, regulators, policymakers, and the water industry more widely, enabling the industry to take positive steps to address the challenge of water poverty.
