High Cost of Cheap Water: The True Value of Water and Freshwater Ecosystems to People and Planet
The importance of water resources is chronically overlooked, with ‘water blindness’ leading to exploitation. This report, written by Dalberg for WWF, can help you better understand the value of water. It explains the vital role that healthy freshwater ecosystems play in sustaining societies and economies, and demonstrates how water is undervalued by quantifying its direct and indirect use value. It also shows that political momentum to protect and restore freshwater systems is growing, but not fast enough. The report concludes by outlining urgent actions to be taken across the public and private sectors to address the global water crisis. This report will be most useful to sustainability practitioners seeking to build their case for advancing a water stewardship strategy in their organisation.
