Water is essential to a healthy society and economy. The water crisis is already impacting large parts of the planet, driven by climate change and made worse by pollution, wastage, bad infrastructure and bad management. Business communities everywhere have an important role to play in addressing the water crisis. They will not only suffer the economic consequences of water scarcity but have the ability, resources and know-how to start addressing the problem before it is too late.

The consequences are already affecting peoples’ lives and livelihoods and are accelerating year-by-year.
