Consistent access to safe drinking water

Summary

Rio will develop a strategy to guarantee consistent access to safe drinking water in the metropolitan area and the Guandu River Basin. In addition to diversifying and decentralizing water sources, the strategy will promote reduction of water consumption and the reuse of gray and rainwater for irrigation, and expanding permeable ground cover to minimize runoff and reduce the heat island effect. Meanwhile, we will commit to cleaning up Guanabara Bay and other bodies of water, and exploring their recreational and economic potential.
