Private Sector: Taking Collaboration to the Next Level

This seminar will bring together private sector, government and NGO partners to present examples of successful cross-sector water partnerships, and to identify key components for effective cooperation. Cases will show how global corporations are working with other sectors to move beyond CSR, developing businesses that contribute to universal access to water and sanitation, and integrating the principles of good water stewardship into core businesses activities.


This new level of cooperation is being reinforced by supportive policy reforms. On the one hand, policies encouraging private sector investment in sustainable market development are increasing. On the other hand, water stewardship is being boosted by vital policy reforms governing both private and public sectors, such as dialogue multi-stakeholder collaboration to develop innovative environmental standards such as the Hydropower Sustainability Assessment Protocol.
