Investing in Water Security – Water Funds
More than 70 percent of the water we take from nature is used for agriculture, producing the food and other goods we all need. But this comes at a cost to the natural world, which needs its own share of water. With additional threats from development and pollution, watersheds need our help. At The Nature Conservancy (TNC), we know that protecting nature goes hand in hand with supporting community health and economic opportunity, and that we can accomplish all three with the right strategies. We have facilitated the establishment and operation of more than 30 water funds around the world, to provide clean water for people and nature from Ecuador to Kenya.
