Tool

The Water Risk Filter

The “Water Risk Filter” is the first tool to quantify water-related risks for all industries in all countries. This tool helps companies and investors ask the right questions about water. It allows you to assess risks and offers guidance on what to do in response. It’s too easy not to use. More than 1,500 organizations from 32 industry sectors have assessed facilities located in almost all of the 405 largest river basins, as well as in hundreds of smaller basins all over the world. You can look at specific facilities or agricultural commodities, each with an automated basin assessment and questionnaire to evaluate direct operations.

And how can we learn from what works and benefit from Nexus solutions that already exist? In this interview, Julia Marton-Lefèvre, IUCN Director-General addresses key issues concerning the interlinkages between the water, energy, food security nexus and proposes solutions for a more sutainable future.
