Understanding sufficiency in water-related collective action. Discussion paper

Understanding sufficiency in water-related collective action. Discussion paper
  • United Nations Global Compact. October 2014
  • This discussion paper explores how companies can go about conducting a water stewardship assessment and use it as the basis of their water-related collective action efforts. It selectively focuses on water stewardship action at the scale of local watersheds and aquifers, as pursued through collective action with the community of water users sharing those local water resources. Specifically, it introduces the concept of 'sufficiency' in managing water stress.
