Global Managing Director, Public Policy, The Nature Conservancy
Water is essential to life. It is also fundamental to economic
well-being — with a nexus to food, energy, industrial production, and a
host of goods and services.
Yet throw a dart on the map, and we see
communities that face water challenges. Yes, we made enormous strides to
address water-related public health and pollution challenges in the
United States over the past century. But a host of new challenges to
water quality require us to think of water management in new ways.
