What is a Water Fund?

Water Funds are collective impact mechanisms aimed at providing water security to metropolitan areas, by investing in natural infrastructure.

Water Funds also help strengthen integrated watershed management and the governance of water resources through the financing of long-term conservation actions and the bringing together of relevant water management actors.

Water Funds give businesses, governments and civil society an effective solution to influence and drive the conservation of natural capital in a sustainable way. They’re an effective option to combine green and grey infrastructures as a long-run solution to secure water provision for cities.
