DESCRIPTION

[OS-TP-28] This session will focus on the challenges and opportunities of engaging in water stewardship, including the presentation of successful initiatives from private and public sectors. Water stewardship is a simple concept but challenging to implement effectively. It goes beyond individual business efficiency, requiring a wider vision of the water resource.  Stewardship requires an understanding of the resource’s context, how it is shared, and how water users’ activity is affected by and affects other water users and the environment in general. The engagement in water stewardships can contribute to business sustainability and water security, within an inclusive and sustainable growth pattern.
