Water is critical for life, livelihoods, and economic growth— yet many decision makers do not understand the role that the natural environment plays in filtering and securing water resources. WRI is raising awareness of natural infrastructure as part of a 21st century paradigm for water resources management. Through direct engagement with key institutions, we are bringing this solution to decision-makers—whether it means advising the National Water Authority in Peru as it advances payments for ecosystem services; showing the State Forestry Administration of the People’s Republic of China how to improve forest management for water quality in Beijing; working with Credit Suisse to engage private capital for natural infrastructure; enabling the Inter-American Development Bank to address drought risks in Brazil; or partnering with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) to bring guidance and tools to its 50,000 water industry professionals across the United States.
