We are who we are as a species because of our ability to harness water. But as populations grow, we must use ingenuity and innovation to support our water resources—so that they can support us.
We all want clean energy and lower flood risk for our communities, but that doesn’t have to come at the expense of healthy rivers.
Farmers, utility owners and investors the world over are coming together to improve water quality and supply.
With more people living in cities than ever before, securing future water supplies matters to us all.
Most of the water we use doesn’t come from a tap. It’s hidden in the things we eat, buy and even wear. How much do you use?
Whether you’re at home, in the office or in your neighborhood, you can have an impact on water and make a difference!
Every acre we protect, every river mile restored, every species brought back from the brink, begins with you.
