Water is critical for our economy, food security, environment, and well-being of our citizens. At the same time, water scarcity, pollution of our fresh water sources, and the effects of more frequent and intense floods and droughts can have severe societal and economic impacts. To prevent these risks, investment and innovative solutions are essential.
