Water Wise Vision Responding to critical challenges,
facing the global water sector.

Why we want to think of water crisis

Andrea Erickson, Managing Director of Water Security at The Nature Conservancy states "Our latest results show that forest protection, reforestation and the use of cover crops can help four out of five of the 4,000 cities analysed reduce sediment and nutrient pollution in waterways by a meaningful amount."



We work to ensure communities can live sustainably without having a negative impact on the ecosystems and biodiversity around them. We support activities that generate awareness of the importance of natural resources.

We support communities to better manage their natural resources in order to generate value and wellbeing from their existing natural resources. We put people at the heart of this by giving them the skills, knowledge and support to build the capacity of rural communities to raise awareness and call for policy changes. Our projects combine promoting sustainable and environmentally friendly livelihoods with immersing people in areas of outstanding natural importance, giving them a sense of why nature must be protected.

Return on investment in ‘nature as infrastructure’ can be 2.5 times that of the equivalent investment in grey infrastructure

Developing a Water Saving Vision

Water underpins every aspect of human and environmental existence.

Water continues to rank high on the World Economic Forum’s risk ladder. The water crisis, together with extreme weather events, natural disasters, and the failure of climate change mitigation and adaptation, forms part of the top 5 risks in terms of expected major impact. Extreme weather events and natural disasters rank in the top 5 of the most likely risks to materialise.

Innovative, solutions and service oriented, we work across a range of areas that contribute to the progression of water management worldwide. We organise world-class events that bring the latest science, technology and best practice to the water sector at large.

"Globalization was supposed to break down barriers between continents and bring all peoples together. But what kind of globalization do we have with over one billion people on the planet not having safe water to drink?"
