More than 99% of Earth’s water is unusable by humans. The collapse of ecosystems, extreme droughts and flooding reflect the mismanagement of the diminishing 1%.

There is a massive opportunity for the IoT to revolutionise the monitoring and management of water resources. New technologies not only enable existing systems to operate more efficiently, but also make new service delivery models possible.
This webinar will inform how the IoT, enabled by Myriota’s direct-to-satellite connectivity, can help water utility operators, farmers and organisations to achieve less waste, less consumption, and improved management of this precious resource.
