Could water security cost $12.6 trillion by 2024?

Our recently published whitepaper, Investing in a Water-Secure Future, forecasts just this. If we miss the UN’s 1.5°C target for global warming, we will unleash a massive increase in severe climate change impacts – a commensurate increase in water security investment becomes imperative. 

But needing investment and money changing hands are not the same thing. We must also ask ourselves: “What can be done to make this investment real?”. The conversation about how we engage capital markets in this begins at GWS.

The findings of this white paper suggest that water security is set to become the biggest global investment theme over the next 10 years.  

This white paper will tackle the important questions:

  • How can the water sector deliver the financial returns necessary to attract the investment it needs?  
  • What are the risks if we do nothing?

This white paper is your guide is an essential document for anyone attending GWS 2024, where we’ll start the discussions needed for value creation in an ever-changing climate.
