This newly released guide is intended to help companies address shared water challenges—and to focus their efforts in the right high-priority places.
WRI, Pacific Institute, and the CEO Water Mandate are working with businesses to develop a database on public water management in the U.S. and Mexico. This forum invites businesses to collaborate, address questions, and learn about the project.
The project aims to gather data on the state of public water management by industrial facilities to develop an open-source geo-database.
Coming up with a common language to describe water issues is a must if companies and other stakeholders are to engage in meaningful action.
WRI and MIT have developed a proven method to crowdsource local data through businesses to develop a unique water management geodatabase, which is now being scaled. Pinpointing areas with strong or weak water management will allow governments, utilities, businesses and investors to more precisely channel resources to places with the most need.
