Water for Life: Managing the World's Most Precious Resource

Monday, April 26, 2010 / 11:00 am - 12:15 pm


Water is essential to sustaining life, good health, agriculture — and business. According to the World Health Organization, water scarcity affects one in three people on every continent. But most environmental debate about climate change and green jobs ignores the integral role of water. While there is growing awareness that water scarcity poses a business risk, the hard fact remains that economic growth without water is impossible. This panel brings together business leaders, policymakers and experts to preview the most creative solutions being attempted to meet the water challenge in the United States and around the world.
