News Risks and Opportunities for Financial Institutions in Water

UNEP FI and UNEP Global Programme of Action for the Protection of the Marine Environment from Land-based Activities (UNEP GPA) co-convened a seminar for presenting an issues paper 'Financing Water: Risks and Opportunities'. The seminar held at the world's leading global annual event for capacity-building and partnership-building in water, invited a number of financial institutions to discuss the findings of an issues paper on water-related risks and opportunities for the financial community. The ideas exchanged at this event provided a framework for developing a set of risk management guidelines for financial institutions in water when dealing with different sub-sectors, from water-intensive businesses to those that may have a water footprint along the supply chain.
