Title:
Sink or Swim: A Multi-sector collaboration on water asset investment

Abstract:
Water is an economically strategic resource, provided and regulated by nature and underpins many business activities. Ensuring that water is carefully stewarded and available in sufficient quantity and quality is a subject of vital interest to business, however, to date the management of and investment in water has been disjointed. The Natural Capital Leaders Platform has launched a report at The Royal Society, London, that has been developed with business and government partners. The report examine new water strategies recognizing the value of water to different sectors. Working collectively with other sectors to finance new water infrastructure is the most efficient way to reduce both short- and long-term risks to water security. This report details four innovative financial models that each offer a new approach to achieving multi-sector water investments.
