About this Positive Pursuit

It is forecast that by 2025, two thirds of the world’s population will live under conditions of water stress – and growing demand will only serve to exacerbate this.

People’s reliance on stressed watersheds is reduced when:

  • More clean water is made available without exacerbating water stress; or
  • Others are able to meet their needs using less water.

This Positive Pursuit encompasses any action which achieves such an outcome.
