About the product

As water resources are unevenly distributed and, in some regions, scarcity and droughts are increasing both in frequency and intensity due to climate change, concerns about them are also becoming more and more important. This report provides an overview of the public and private initiatives on water accounting and efficiency worldwide with the aim of raising awareness as well as enhancing sustainable water management. The publication includes three reports developed by the United Nations Environment Programme in the area of water footprint, corporate water accounting and disclosure for resource efficiency.
