WILL & WATER.
Water scarcity and poor quality is a risk to economic development, business growth, ecosystem health and social well being.
Accepting "business as usual" projections is not an option.
We have a pretty good track record of innovating our way out of resource constraints, we now need to scale our solutions to addressing the 21st century water challenges…
”I can’t accept that a large part of humanity does’t have access to safe drinking water due to scarcity or poor quality. This is a human right that we no longer can ignore. Physical and economic water scarcity along with poor quality
water can be solved through innovation in partnerships, technology and public policy. Our runway to address these issues is short and the time is now to move beyond outdated thinking and frameworks to address these issues.”
