What is Water Stewardship?

Water stewardship is the use and treatment of water in ways that are socially equitable, environmentally sustainable, and economically beneficial. It can be adopted by businesses, through corporate water stewardship, as well as by growers, communities, and others. Ultimately, stewardship is a key practice to address these critical water challenges, drive sustainable water management, and achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.
