This topic looks at areas in the water industry that are not as clearly defined or are new, innovative consumer and industry uses or interests. For example, understanding the link between climate change and levels of water availability is still being calculated, standards on how to accurately assess and calculate the relationship between consumption and water use (the Water Footprint). In addition, understanding the importance of sensory evaluation of water and water related beverages, and how to develop standards to make the connection between energy exploration and its impact on the water quality and geography of a region.
