Got ideas on how to reduce NRW? Win a prize!

This lauches today:
Dreampipe, a major British government-funded, multi-year innovation prize, was launched today, aiming to stem the amount of water lost in developing countries through leakage, meter inaccuracies and unauthorized use.

The initiative will spur improved ways of mobilising funding to reduce the vast amounts of 'non-revenue water' (NRW) – the difference between water entering the system and water billed to customers – in developing countries
I find it ironic that they are targeting NRW in developing countries when English water companies leak about 20 percent of their water and about 5 percent of bills go unpaid (cumulative debt is over GBP 2 billion).
